I am an Assistant Professor of Energy Economics in the John and Willie Leone Family Department of Energy and Mineral Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University. My research group studies the design and operations of electricity markets using quantitative methods at the intersection of economics, operations research and statistics.
Current work focuses on:
cross-product manipulation in electricity markets
state policy interactions with electricity markets
electricity market structure for wind energy integration
economics of widespread, long duration power interruptions
Before joining Penn State, I was a Ziff Environmental Fellow at Harvard University from 2012 to 2014. I earned a B.A. in Economics (summa cum laude) from LUISS University, a M.A. in Energy Economics from the Scuola Mattei, and a M.S. and Ph.D. in Geography and Environmental Engineering from The Johns Hopkins University.
