Daniel Raimi is a Senior Research Associate for Resources for the Future and a lecturer at the Ford School for Public Policy. He works on a range of energy policy issues with a focus on oil and gas systems, natural resource taxation, electricity systems, and climate change. He is particularly interested in the long-term implications of domestic oil and gas development for local communities, state governments, and federal climate policy. Between 2012 and 2015, he visited every major onshore oil and gas play in the United States, and in Fall 2017 will publish a book based on those travels that examines key oil and gas policy issues.
Raimi received his master’s degree in public policy from Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy and his bachelor’s degree in music from Wesleyan University. He has published in academic journals including Science, Environmental Science and Technology, and the Journal of Economic Perspectives; popular outlets including the New Republic, Newsweek, and Fortune; and presented his research for policymakers, industry, and other stakeholders around the United States and internationally. Raimi joined the Energy Institute from 2015-2016, helping to organize the social sciences and policy framework of the Beyond Carbon Neutral Project.
