Anshuman (Ansu) Sahoo is a Research Associate at the Graduate School of Business at Stanford. He is also a Research Fellow of the Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance. His research applies economic theory, econometrics, and the tools of operations research to address issues related to energy technology and policy. In particular, he develops and applies methods to study the economic efficiency of alternative carbon mitigation strategies. This work encompasses two streams. In one track, he examines the behavior of firms and primarily uses cost models and metrics to predict competitiveness. In the other stream, he builds choice models to investigate consumer behavior.
Ansu was previously a management consultant with the Boston Consulting Group, where his clients included companies in the private equity, industrial goods, and energy sectors, and an intern and consulting energy economist for the Asian Development Bank. He holds a Ph.D. in Management Science and Engineering and an M.S. in Statistics from Stanford University. He also earned a B.S.E. in Chemical Engineering from Princeton University.
