I am an Assistant Professor of Economics and Public Policy at the Heinz College at Carnegie Mellon University. I completed my Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2015. My research uses a combination of economic modeling and causal inference techniques to quantify the economic and environmental costs and benefits of a wide range of policies aimed at the electricity and coal sectors.
In recent work, I have examined the introduction of financial trading to California’s wholesale electricity market, the phase-out of nuclear power in Germany, the dramatic growth of rooftop solar capacity in Western Australia, and the determinants of electricity blackouts in India.
I recently won the USAEE Young Professional Research Competition.
My paper on regulatory-induced risk aversion in coal procurement was the Editor’s choice for January 2022 at the Journal of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists.
