Ph.D. Student in Public Policy
My research focus is on environmental/energy economics in the context of increasingly global and intergenerational environmental problems, such as climate change. In particular, how the electricity market can build efficiency and resilience in electricity production and further induce more sustainable energy consumption attracts my keen interest. My ongoing research project studies the connection between the economic burden from energy-related spending and evictions. My fields of interest, in addition to environmental/energy economics, include public economics and industrial organization. I have a Master of Environmental Management (M.E.M.) degree from the Nicholas School of Environment at Duke University, and a Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree in Environmental Science from the University of Tokyo. In the past, I have worked with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) as an intern, and as a communications advisor in Japan.
