Elliot Carleton

Research and Communications Consultant

Elliot recently graduated from Whitman College in Washington State, USA with a degree in economics. At Whitman, Elliot developed an interest in the intersection between economics and the environment, which guided him towards a diverse range of professional experiences. After his sophomore year, Elliot worked as a portfolio manager with Business Impact NW, where he helped to increase the availability of financial services within economically marginalised communities across the Pacific Northwest region. Following this experience, Elliot worked as a research assistant with Earth Economics. In this role, he co-authored a paper analysing the complex relationship between disaster recovery, displacement, and economic insecurity in Puerto Rico and researched hurricane mitigation techniques, such as agroforestry and coastal ecosystem regeneration. Elliot’s understanding of the intricate connections between environmental sustainability and economic prosperity fuels his desire to unlock sustainable avenues towards economic development.
