Her work focuses on energy transition and climate mitigation, particularly the land use-climate change-energy nexus and U.S. subnational policy. At CGS, she researches coal phaseout, expansion of biomass utilization, and sustainable development, particularly within an Indonesian context, impacts of subnational policy on the attainment of U.S. climate goals, and conducts integrated assessment modeling. Her prior work focused on understanding county-level barriers to siting of renewable energy, and strategies for overcoming local opposition to accelerate deployment.
