Harris Public Policy
Ryan Kellogg studies energy and environmental economics, with an emphasis on markets for oil and gas, transportation fuels, and light-duty vehicles. His interest in these topics stems from four years of professional experience working for British Petroleum prior to attending graduate school. His research has examined such issues as the effects of oil price uncertainty on drilling activity in the United States, the effectiveness of US and California reformulated gasoline regulations, and the transmission of automobile brand preferences across generations within families. He is currently writing a paper on the optimality of fuel economy standards in the presence of uncertainty about the future price of gasoline.
His work has been published in the American Economic Review, the Quarterly Journal of Economics, Brookings Papers on Economic Activity, and Journal of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists, among other outlets. He serves on the editorial board of the American Economic Journal: Economic Policy, is a research associate for the National Bureau of Economic Research, and is a co–principal investigator on two Alfred P. Sloan Foundation grants for research in energy economics.
Kellogg received his PhD in agricultural and resource economics from the University of California, Berkeley. Most recently, he was an associate professor of economics at the University of Michigan and also served as director of the Michigan Institute for Teaching and Research in Economics.
