Curriculum Vitae



My current research includes studies of the role of regulation on oil and gas investment on federal lands, the economic impacts of fracking; climate, weather, and energy demand; economic welfare and unconventional energy technology; light oil, petroleum coke, and the refined petroleum product trade; and the role of innovation in profits from fracking. All of these studies involve testing models derived from microeconomic theory with advanced econometric methods using large panel datasets.
