I am an energy and environmental economist in the Michigan State
University Department of Economics. I draw from the fields of applied
microeconomics, industrial organization, public economics, and consumer
My research studies the drivers of the grid transition from fossil fuels to renewables in two contexts: First, by examining the economics of renewables on the grid and how wholesale electricity prices and environmental costs change as intermittent renewables and battery storage are integrated into the grid. Second, by examining household-level decisions about energy efficiency and the decision to install rooftop solar.
