Dr. Katrina Jessoe is an associate professor in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at UC Davis, where she specializes in environmental and energy economics. Much of her research centers on the design and evaluation of water regulations and time variant pricing in the electricity sector. She often collaborates with electric and water utilities, as well as state agencies. Some recent and ongoing projects include a framed field experiment to understand the energy impacts of water conservation instruments, the design of a randomized field experiment to test the role of information on the price elasticity for residential electricity, the analysis of time-variant pricing programs for residential and commercial electricity customers, and rate design in the residential water sector. She received a BA from Princeton University in 2002 and a PhD in Environmental and Resource Economics from Yale University in 2009.
