Economic Analyst (STEP 2002-2005)

I work with David Bradford on the policies of energy, economy, and climate change. I am interested in economic and policy analysis of carbon management. My research focuses on energy supply and demand, carbon emissions, cost of carbon abatement, international burden-sharing of carbon control, and the applications of integrated models in energy, economy, and climate change.
