About the Author(s)


Ryan Kellogg is a Research Associate in the NBER Programs on Energy and Environmental Economics and Industrial Organization. An associate professor of economics at the University of Michigan, he received a B.A. in economics and a B.S. in chemical engineering at Rice University in 1999, and completed his Ph.D. in agricultural and resource economics at the University of California, Berkeley in 2008. He worked for BP from 1999-2003.

Kellogg's research bridges industrial organization, energy economics, and environmental policy. Many of his projects examine the behavior of U.S. oil and gas producers, addressing questions such as how production companies interact with drilling companies to improve productivity, how drilling decisions react to price volatility in crude oil markets, and why oil production is unresponsive to oil price shocks in the short run. He also has studied the effectiveness of U.S. reformulated gasoline programs, household vehicle demand and future fuel price expectations, the economics of interstate oil and gas transmission, and potential impacts of climate change.

He lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with his fiancée, Kim, and their collie, Sophie.
