New Appointments Demonstrate Growth at Cambridge Econometrics

Demonstrating its commitment to growth and a consolidated position in Europe, Cambridge Econometrics (CE) is pleased to announce the appointment of two new members of staff.

Building on success in Europe

Dr. Dora Fazekas, based in Budapest, takes up the role of project manager in the International Energy-Environment-Economy modelling team. Dora is an environmental economist specialising in international translational research. She has over ten years’ experience successfully bridging academic research with policy-making and technology research and development. Her focus at CE will be the application of economic and econometric analysis to inform decision-makers in the fields of climate, energy and the circular economy.

Dora says, “CE has a track record of undertaking rigorous research and providing compelling outputs. I am proud to join the organisation as it opens new offices outside the UK.”

Clarity from complexity

Emma Fitzgibbon also joins the company as its first Marketing and Communications Manager, coinciding with a brand overhaul and a determined focus on promoting CE’s success. Emma has over 15 years’ experience in policy and communications, working in sectors as varied as educational planning, housing, and European policy, in both London and Paris.

“I am delighted to join Cambridge Econometrics at a time when the need for evidence-based policy-making is more important than ever. With its commitment to delivering clarity from complexity the organisation has a positive message to communicate not only to the business community, but to the wider public too.”
