Brief Bio:
I am an Assistant Professor at the Levin College of Urban Affairs and also serve as a Faculty Affiliate at the Energy Justice Lab at Indiana University. My research focuses on energy and society and, explicitly, three domestic energy topics: residential energy insecurity; the administration of energy assistance programs and policies; and the implications of the clean energy transition on vulnerable communities.

I empirically examine whom energy insecurity affects, how it affects them, and how government programs have helped alleviate energy insecurity, if at all. My research offers theoretical and empirical contributions to the energy justice, material hardship, and public administration literatures.
