Welcome to my website!
I am a Senior Research Analyst in the Energy Transition practice at Wood Mackenzie, a global consultancy providing data analytics, market research, and advisory services across the energy sector. I lead the firm's coverage of downstream solar photovoltaics markets in Africa and the Middle East and emerging coverage of off-grid power markets (though I've covered nearly every global solar market at one point or another!). I regularly publish research studies and thought leadership articles on trends in the energy transition and present my work at conferences around the world. My research and writing have recently been featured in such publications as Foreign Affairs, The Economist, FT, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, IEEE Spectrum, Bloomberg, the World Economic Forum, and Greentech Media.
These days, I am particularly interested in driving the solar industry's thinking around new market development for off-grid energy access and competitive solar procurement policy implementation frameworks and utility business models in emerging economies.
I also conduct affiliated research as a Non-Resident Fellow at the Payne Institute at the Colorado School of Mines, The Energy for Growth Hub, and the Foundation for Renewable Energy & Environment. I direct Market Development and Strategy for Mee Panyar, a startup implementing a community-based operations and capacity-building model for mini-grids in rural Myanmar and serve as an advisor for an early-stage solar home system startup in West Africa.
I previously worked in solar asset management and commercial operations at SunEdison and on clean energy transition-focused regulatory research for utilities and policymakers at the National Regulatory Research Institute.
I hold a Master of Energy & Environmental Policy and a B.S. in Economics and Energy & Environmental Policy from the Biden School of Public Policy and Administration at the University of Delaware. Slightly more often than not, I can be found in Boston with my amazing wife Rebecca.
