I am interested in understanding the factors that shape technological change, with a particular focus on transitioning to environmentally sustainable and energy-saving technologies. Specific areas of interest include:
- Technological Change: Study how individual, firm, and national level factors affect the nature, pace, and extent of technological change, with an emphasis on clean energy transitions.
- Design for Market Systems: Measure and predict consumer choice and firm behavior in the marketplace to assess product design for profitability or policy analysis.
- Innovation and Competitiveness: Understand relationships between technology, innovation, policy, and the competitiveness of firms and nations.
- Electric Vehicles & Sustainable Transportation: Assess how consumer preferences, economics, and policy affect the development and adoption of electric vehicles and sustainable transit solutions.
- China: Examine the above topics in the context of one of the world’s largest developing nations.
Where I Work
I am a postdoctoral fellow at Boston University's Institute for Sustainable Energy. I previously worked as a Ph.D. student with Professor Jeremy Michalek in the Vehicle Electrification Group and Design Decisions Lab, and Professor Erica Fuchs in the Global Competitiveness Lab at Carnegie Mellon University. Starting July 2018, I will be an Assistant Professor at George Washington University in the Department of Engineering Management and Systems Engineering.
