Jill is interested in studying market outcomes, reliability concerns, and community planning objectives as they relate to electric grid decarbonization. Specifically, she’s interested in understanding how valuing community-level costs and benefits of zero-carbon energy options in investment models could better inform potential solutions. Prior to joining ERG, Jill worked for the Brattle Group’s energy practice, where she built capacity expansion optimization models to examine futures with high penetrations of non-emitting and distributed energy resources. Jill holds a B.A. in Computer Science with a Certificate in Informatics and Modelling from Wesleyan University. Outside of her academic interests, Jill enjoys backpacking, engaging in bicycle and transit advocacy, and cooking.
