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 pricing and conservation policies in the water and electricity sectors. In her research, she often collaborates with electric and water utilities, as well as state agencies. Some recent and ongoing projects include the estimation of the price elasticity of demand for agricultural groundwater and land use, the effects of drought on drinking water in disadvantaged communities, and a RCT to understand the effects of default options in commercial energy efficiency.
