Ryan Kellogg is a professor and deputy dean for academic programs at the Harris School of Public Policy, and is a Research Associate at the National Bureau for Economic Research. Ryan’s research bridges industrial organization, energy economics, and environmental policy, focusing on the economics of resource extraction and on the transportation sector. Ryan’s publications examine topics such as the response of investment to uncertainty, the economic consequences of the shale gas boom, the effectiveness of policies to reduce emissions from the transportation sector, factors affecting households’ vehicle demand, and the nature of firms’ and households’ beliefs about future oil and refined product prices. In ongoing work, Ryan is studying the economics of private mineral leases for shale gas and the economics of fuel economy standards when future gasoline prices are uncertain.

Ryan earned a Ph.D. in Agricultural and Resource Economics from the University of California, Berkeley in 2008. Prior to his graduate studies, Ryan worked for BP in Houston, TX and Anchorage, AK for four years as an engineer and economic analyst. Ryan earned a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and a B.A. in Economics from Rice University in 1999. He grew up outside of Cleveland, OH.
