I joined the Economics Department and the Environmental Studies Program at Middlebury College as an assistant professor in the fall of 2007. I earned promotion with tenure in December of 2013. I joined the National Bureau of Economic Research as a Faculty research Fellow in 2012 and I was promoted to Research Associate in the fall of 2013. I spent July, 2015 to January, 2016 as a visiting associate professor of economics at Carnegie Mellon University. I teach microeconomics as well as environmental and natural resource economics. Broadly, my research focuses on measuring air pollution damage and market-based policy design. My current work focuses on comparing air pollution and climate damages from electric vehicles to conventional vehicles, estimating air pollution damage from energy production, an ex post evaluation of the Acid Rain Program, quality change in energy price indices, and selection bias in air pollution monitoring networks. I have published papers in the American Economic Review (3), Science (2), Explorations in Economic History, Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, Environmental and Resource Economics, Resource and Energy Economics, The Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, The Energy Journal, Environment and Development Economics, Nature Climate Change, Environmental Science & Technology, The Berkeley Electronic Press' Journal of Economic Analysis and Policy (2), Water Resources Research, Environment International, and Environmetrics.
