I am an applied economist working at the intersection of industrial organization, energy markets, and environmental economics. Much of my work investigates how market-based environmental regulation- and emissions trading programs in particular- are working in practice. I am also interested in the demand-side of energy markets and work that integrates methods and models from other disciplines into economic analysis of policy outcomes.
