I am interested in investigating the consequences of environmental and energy issues in macroeconomics. The broad goal of my research in environmental macroeconomics is to find solutions to reconcile economic growth and environmental concerns, which has important consequences for welfare and is critical from a policy perspective.

My current research investigates technological change and its consequences for energy transitions and economic growth. Specifically, my research focuses on obtaining empirical estimates of a technological transition in the electricity sector using novel data. These estimates are important to understand technological change in electricity generation and to design policies to decarbonize the electricity sector.
