In my research I use quantitative empirical methods to study topics in energy and urban economics. I am particularly interested in the economics of energy transitions, cities and the spatial structure of economic development, energy use and urbanization, spatial inequality, (spatial) diffusion of technology, and the role of institutions and governance in economic development.
