Gabe Chan is a Public Policy Ph.D. student at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government where he studies energy technology innovation economics and policy. Prior to coming to Harvard, Gabe graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he received Bachelor of Science degrees in Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Science, and Political Science. In 2007 and 2009, Gabe worked at the U.S. Department of Energy where he worked 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 are looking at how expert elicitation can be leveraged for energy modeling and decision-making, the impact of venture capital and federal R&D financing for early-stage energy innovation, and evaluation of the performance of national lab innovation using patent data.
