Amy B. Craft
Woodrow Wilson School
Dr. Craft is an economist specializing in energy regulation and policy. Before coming to Princeton, Dr. Craft worked in the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice analyzing mergers and acquisitions in the electricity sector. While at Princeton, she has taught courses on several topics, including energy economics, environmental economics and risk analysis.
Her research interests broadly lie in the area of energy market structure and regulation, particularly in the electricity sector. Given the complexities and environmental consequences associated with both the demand and supply side of energy, there is room for regulation to improve market efficiency.
Unfortunately, many economic policies, such as a tax on greenhouse gases, are not politically feasible. Dr. Craft is interested in evaluating the efficiency of other policies. In particular, she is interested in looking at the incentives they create for technological change in how we produce and consume energy.
