Bio


My research focuses on the economics and financing of clean energy in developing countries.

Immediately prior to E-IPER I worked with Resources for the Future, a resource economics think tank. Earlier, I was the Executive Director of the Community Office for Resource Efficiency.

I hold an MPA and certificate in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy from Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, where I was awarded the David Bradford Prize. I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Georgia, where I was a Foundation Fellow.
