Research Description

I am a public economist specializing in environmental and energy economics, with a secondary expertise in the economics of taxation. Much of my research is focused on greenhouse gas emissions from the personal transportation sector. I study the policies affecting that domain (fuel economy regulations, subsidies for alternative technology vehicles, gasoline pricing, etc.), as well as consumer choice over automobiles, and the strategic behavior of automakers. Outside of transportation, I study policy design for other energy-consuming durable goods (e.g., home appliances).
