Ian is a senior majoring in both Public Policy and Economics, with a focus on energy and environmental policy. Ian's interests are varied: his first summer after Stanford he spent managing a campaign for New York State Assembly; the next summer he spent sailing. He is now working on his economics thesis, investigating the potential role of emissions trading schemes in aviation emissions reductions. Ian also recently returned from a quarter at Oxford, where he pursued tutorials in public economics and energy policy. Some of his highlights with the program have included Public Policy 102, "Organizations;" 104, "Economic Policy Analysis;" and, of course, discussions with peers and faculty at the annual departmental dinner. In his free time, Ian likes to run, bike, and swim, and just generally appreciate the beauty of the outdoors and of the Bay Area.
