I am a Postdoctoral Associate with the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) specializing in economic analysis of energy markets. My research focuses on current and future trends toward deep decarbonization in the electric power sector and on quantifying the challenges and opportunities for expanded electrification of consumer products and industrial processes. My ongoing work uses econometric techniques and high-resolution data to (i) assess the efficacy of electric vehicle incentives and (ii) quantify the costs and consequences of energy generation from renewable sources.
Prior to joining MITEI, I served as a researcher with the Strategic Energy Analysis Center at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory studying transportation economics and policy, and was a Senior Analyst at Analysis Group where I specialized in issues of energy, environmental, and antitrust economics. I received an MA and PhD in Economics from the University of Colorado Boulder.
