Lukas' scientific interests lie in the field of macroeconomics as well as environmental and ecological economics. At ZOE, he focusses on the economics of the green transition, especially on fiscal policy, industrial policy, and economic resilience.
Lukas studied economics at Leibniz University Hanover, specialising in environmental-, development-, and macroeconomics. In his master thesis, he investigated the welfare effects of economic growth in contrast to other macro indicators. Lukas joined ZOE as an intern in January 2021 and later worked as a research assistant and junior economist.
