A New Job, A New Applied Energy Program

As of last Wednesday, I am now working with Nobel Prize winner Vernon Smith’s Interdisciplinary Center for Economic Science at George Mason University.

I will be the Director of a new Applied Energy Research Program at ICES. Through this program we plan to expand the use of experimental economic research in the establishment and implementation of regulatory policy, particularly electricity policy, at both the state and federal levels. Our efforts will focus on the value provided through double-sided markets in which both supply and demand can participate actively. We will engage in policy-oriented research and in direct engagement with policymakers to achieve these goals.

In conjunction with the new position I will continue to teach in the Economics Department at Northwestern University, but have resigned my position at Reason (although I remain a Senior Fellow).
