Antoine Godin is responsible for the development and monitoring program for the macroeconomic modeling tool, GEMMES: “General Monetary and Multisectoral Macrodynamics for the Ecological Shift.” Developed by AFD, this tool is one of the few whose scenarios include economic and financial risks related to climate change and the increasing scarcity of resources that result.
Antoine Godin joined AFD in 2017 and worked on the development of an application of the GEMMES model for the economies of Colombia and Morocco. He has been head of the GEMMES Unit since July 2019. He is also continuing research on low-carbon and resilient economic development, with a focus on the changes in the job market that are part of this transition.
Before joining AFD, Antoine Godin contributed to the development of different methodological approaches to macroeconomic modeling, which have been built on the concept of links between economic dynamics and financial dynamics.
He was previously a consultant for the Bank of England and Professor of Financial Economics at Kingston University in London. Antoine Godin is now an Associate Economist at the Center of Economics of the University of Paris-Nord (CEPN). He graduated as an Engineer in Applied Mathematics at the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium), and holds a PhD in Economics from the University of Pavia (Italy). Using multi-agent stock-flow consistent models, he has studied innovation dynamics, financial instability and guaranteed employment policies.
