I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of California, Berkeley and a graduate student researcher at the Energy Institute at Haas. I study energy and environment economics and industrial organization. My recent research examines market power in wholesale electricity markets, demand-side energy efficiency programs, and the design of environmental policies. I also develop applied econometric techniques for use in my empirical work.
