Project Description

My interests are in the policies related to human-environmental sustainability and the demographics of energy use. Specifically, I study the relationship between people’s environmental attitudes and their consumption behaviors and how this relationship can inform policy. In my present project, I am assessing the policies to incentivize the diffusion of electric cars in Oregon and Washington; to do this, I am analyzing the characteristics of the people--and their neighborhoods--who have already adopted them.
