Jonathan Eyer

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Southern California's Center for Risk and Economic Analysis of Terrorist Events (CREATE). I received my PhD in economics from North Carolina State University.

My research interests lie at the intersection of energy, the environment, and risk. My work has explored how differentiated firm incentives affect risks in shale gas drilling, how market responses to policies designed to increase natural gas vehicle usage will increase emissions from coal-fired power plants in the electricity sector, the environmental implications of water scarcity on the electricity sector, and the environmental impacts of political protection of coal mines.

In addition to energy-related research, I am also interested in the damages from natural disasters and climate change, as well as the extent to which mitigation and adaptation can ameliorate these risks.
