1 min read

Joseph Aldy, assistant professor of public policy at Harvard Kennedy School, has been named faculty chair of the Regulatory Policy Program at the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government (M-RCBG).

Aldy’s research focuses on climate change policy, energy policy, and mortality risk valuation. In 2009-10, he served as the special assistant to the president for energy and environment, reporting through both the National Economic Council and the Office of Energy and Climate Change at the White House.

“The Regulatory Policy Program will serve as the hub of regulation-related research activities at the Harvard Kennedy School and will engage scholars across the University to identify the most effective ways to design, implement, and evaluate regulatory policy,” explained Aldy.
