I discovered energy analysis as a career path during my graduate studies here at AAE. Under the direction of Professor Provencher, I estimated the price elasticity of residential energy consumption based on data from a real time pricing pilot program. That research sparked my passion for using quantitative analysis to affect energy consumption. After graduation, I worked at Navigant Consulting for four years, where I developed expertise in energy efficiency program evaluation and honed my project management skills. My work focuses on behavior change programs, demand response programs, pricing programs, and low income programs.

I coordinate the Resource and Energy Demand Analysis (REDA) program, a 1-year professional master's program within AAE. I enjoy sharing my technical skills and professional insights with REDA students, helping to develop the next generation of energy & resource analysts. Many of my hobbies center around enjoying our natural environment -- biking, hiking, camping, gardening, traveling -- and I am grateful that my career contributes to the preservation of our natural resources for future generations.
