About Me

I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at University of Florida. I am on currently on the job market for the 2013-2014 academic year and will be available for interviews at the AEA/ASSA Annual Meeting in Philadelphia in January 2014.

I teach an undergraduate course in Game Theory. My primary fields of interest are Energy Economics, Applied Econometrics, Industrial Organization, and Auction Theory. My secondary fields are Health Economics, Environmental Economics, and Regulation.

My current research analyzes the effect of electricity market design on the performance of restructured electricity markets. In particular, I analyze and evaluate the performance of capacity payment mechanisms used to promote generation capacity investment.

In addition to my work on electricity market design, I also research the application of a recently developed Bayesian Surname and Geocoding Imputation method in the healthcare industry to solve issues associated with missing race/ethnicity data. Missing race/ethnicity data often restricts researchers' abilities to determine if there are disparities in the provision of healthcare services across individual's characteristics such as race, gender, and age.
