I am a Ph.D. candidate in Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government where I study energy technology innovation economics and policy.

I am currently a Research Fellow in the Energy Technology Innovation Policy group of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and a Pre-Doctoral Fellow in the Harvard Environmental Economics Program. I have been previously affiliated with the Harvard Sustainability Science Program and the Harvard Graduate Consoritum on Energy and the Environment.

Prior to coming to Harvard, I graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with B.S. degrees in Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Science, and Political Science.

In 2007 and 2009, I worked at the U.S. Department of Energy in the Climate Change Technology Program (CCTP), an interagency group tasked with prioritizing the federal government’s investments and policies for mitigating climate change through accelerated technology innovation and deployment.

Current research projects examine the effect of technology transfer on knowledge diffusion at the U.S. National Laboratories, wind energy development in China under the Clean Development Mechanism, R&D decision making, methods for utilizing expert elicitation in decision making, and dynamics of global innovation systems.
