I am a data scientist and environmental economist whose expertise includes spatial microsimulation, machine learning and predictive modeling, and geospatial analysis. I previously worked on the Decent Living Energy Project as a Research Scholar at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). As a consultant to the Citizens' Climate Lobby, I authored a national Household Impact Study to quantify the effect of carbon tax policy on individual households and created a Carbon Fee and Dividend Calculator to disseminate results to the public. As a Senior Associate at the Center for Global Development, I published on high-resolution carbon footprinting, spatiotemporal optimization of renewable energy systems, and co-created the CARMA global power plant database.
