I am an environmental economist working to answer policy-relevant questions related to climate change and innovation. My current research focuses on characterizing firm responses to carbon pricing and renewable energy subsidies.
For my job market paper, I examine changes in productivity among coal-fired power plants and identify trade-offs that firms make when faced with a carbon price. My results have implications for carbon emissions reductions we can expect from carbon taxes as well as the current US federal administration's climate policy.
