Bio

I am an economist who uses methods in industrial organization and microeconomics to explore my research interests in energy and the environment. I am currently a doctoral candidate in environmental economics at Yale University in the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. My research studies energy and electricity markets, climate change policy, urban economics, distributional impacts of environmental policy, and industry responses to environmental regulation. In addition, I am interested in transportation demand, urban form, and energy efficiency in urban centers.

My professional experiences in the electricity industry, federal government, and non-governmental organizations inform my research agenda. I seek to use economic methods to inform the efficient and equitable design of environmental regulation.

I have a MESc. and a MPhil. in Environmental Economics from Yale University, a B.A. in Political Economy of Industrialized Societies and Music from the University of California, Berkeley.
