From 2009 to 2015 Filatova worked as an economist at Deltares, a Dutch policy-oriented think tank.
Her research focuses on exploring how behavioural changes at the micro level could lead to critical transitions (tipping points/regime shifts/non-marginal changes) at the macro level in complex adaptive human-environment systems.
Filatova studies these processes in relation to climate change economics (adaptation and mitigation).
She is particularly interested in the relationship between the policies and aggregated outcomes of individual stakeholder decisions in the context of spatial and environmental policy-making. The issue of social interactions affecting economic behaviour is highly relevant here. Filatova uses agent-based modelling (ABM) combined with surveys and laboratory experiments.
