Marco is a PhD Fellow with enthusiasm for emerging technologies and exploring how they can potentially disrupt the way we govern our shared systems. His research focuses on blockchain as a foundational technology to enable innovative economic and governance models to generate trust and accelerate the Paris Agreement implementation and the Sustainable Development Goals.
At the end of 2013, Marco became fascinated with Bitcoin as a borderless currency offering the option of sound money. After the launch of Ethereum, when a range of possible blockchain applications opened up, he began researching and analysing promising blockchain projects, as well as their limitations.
Marco has experience in developing national accounting systems through the Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT) and the Capacity Building Initiative for Transparency (CBIT). Additionally, he has managed climate finance projects under the ADMIRE project with external partners across the broader international community in the context of the Paris Agreement. Marco holds a Master’s degree in Environmental Science from the University of Copenhagen and participated in MIT Sloan Executive Education on blockchain business innovation and application.
