David Popp is associate professor of public administration. He is an economist with research interests in environmental policy and the economics of technological change. Much of his research focuses on the links between environmental policy and innovation. He is particularly interested in how environmental and energy policies shape the development of new technologies that may be relevant for combating climate change. His work has been funded by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy, and has been published in a variety of economics and policy journals, including American Economic Review, RAND Journal of Economics, Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, and Journal of Policy Analysis and Management. Popp is a Faculty Research Fellow of the National Bureau of Economic Research and an associate editor of Energy Economics. He has served as a consultant for the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development. He received a B.A. in Political Economy from Williams College in 1992, and a Ph.D. in Economics from Yale University in 1997.
