I work to bring a data-driven approach to the public policy field through the greater use of new technology. In early 2015, I started Atlas Public Policy, a policy tech firm whose mission is to equip businesses and policymakers to make strategic, informed decisions through the greater use of technology that aggregates publicly available information. Atlas arms our audience with the information necessary to encourage the use of new technologies and products along with changes in consumer behavior.
Prior to creating Atlas in early 2015, I was the Senior Manager of Transportation Initiatives at the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES), where I developed C2ES’s strategy to save oil and reduce greenhouse gases from the transportation sector. I led two multi-year initiatives focused on innovative business models and state policy frameworks to accelerate the deployment low-carbon vehicles.
While at C2ES, I wrote 14 reports on private finance, electric vehicles, lifecycle emissions from vehicle and fuels, federal transportation legislation, ridesharing, and related topics. I also managed a comprehensive report on reducing greenhouse gas emissions from U.S. transportation.
In a prior life, I spent six years as an engineer and manager in the high-tech industry at Oasis Semiconductor in Waltham, Massachusetts. I was a strategic part of Oasis, helping it grow from 15 to almost 100 employees in under four years, and led projects with the largest impact on company revenue. While at Oasis, I developed a reputation for successful and timely client delivery.
I hold a Master of Public Policy from the University of California Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy and a Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
