Welcome to my web page! I work at the Economics Department and at the Baker Institute for Public Policy at Rice University. I am interested in interdisciplinary research on the many connections between economics, the environment, conservation, transportation, and growth. My current work concentrates on the energy transition to a sustainable, low-carbon economy, innovation in the energy sector, and self-enforcing conservation and climate agreements.

During Spring 2017 I will be at the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability at UCLA
