My research interests focus on the intersection of economic and industrial policy, energy policy, and environmental politics. I study the role of the state in processes of industrial restructuring that accompany policy responses to climate change and clean energy transitions more broadly. My work utilizes clean energy transitions in China, Germany, and the United States to engage two debates in comparative political economy: (1) the role of the state in shaping the international division of labor in highly globalized industries, and (2) sources of state capacity in interest group politics during periods of industrial restructuring.
