Research Expertise and Interest

industrial organization, energy markets, energy efficiency, market-based environmental regulation, renewable energy resources.


My research interests lie at the intersection of empirical industrial organization, environmental economics, and public policy. Much of my work involves positive, and some normative, analysis of policy interventions designed to reduce the environmental impacts of energy production and consumption. I am particularly interested in understanding how market-based environmental regulations are working in practice.
