Dr. Carmen Carrión-Flores is a Research Assistant Professor of Economics in the Maxwell School’s Department of Economics and a Senior Research Associate in the Center for Policy Research. Carmen Carrión-Flores is an environmental and regional economist whose research interests are in land use economics, energy efficiency, air pollution, and migration. She uses spatial and dynamic econometric models to answer questions that are relevant for policy analysis. Carmen's current projects include the analysis of different effects of environmental, natural resources, energy, and labor policies on different outcomes, and their mechanisms. A critical aspect of her research is to tackle relevant policy questions using an interdisciplinary approach. For instance, her research on Energy Star® lies at the interplay between economics and engineering. Engineers have continually pushed our technological boundaries to deliver energy efficient appliances and houses. In controlled trials, those appliances and houses exhibit substantial energy savings. However, from a holistic point of view, the effectiveness of those technologies and related policies (e.g., ENERGY STAR©) should consider any economic or behavioral responses by the end consumers. Her work has been published in a mixture of disciplinary and interdisciplinary academic journals, including the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, American Journal of Agricultural Economics, Ecological Economics, Regional Science and Urban Economics, and the IZA Journal of Development and Migration.
