My research emphasizes greenhouse gas emission reduction program design, including emissions trading schemes, low carbon fuel standards, feed-in tariffs, and renewable energy standards. I am also interested in life cycle analysis of various alternative fuels, US and international climate change legislation, ethics of climate change and international climate negotiations. My research group is currently producing a report which analyzes strategies for incorporating the transportation sector into emissions trading schemes.
