I amĀ 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.
