Moving Towards a Sustainable Future

I am a Ph.D. student in Economics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. My research interests include the economics of the energy and environment and policy issues relevant to health, inequality, and development. In my early works, I investigated the environmental impact of demand-side management program in electricity wholesale market and energy-intensive adaptation to ambient air pollution. My working papers explore the health impact of pollution alerts and the feasibility of power sector decarbonization. I am currently studying the impact of coal decline on job transitions and migration in the U.S.
