As the Assistant Professor of Economics and Finance in the Department of Sustainable Resources Management at State University of New York (ESF) in Syracuse, NY, Nehan Naim teaches courses in and study market structures broadly and regulations in particular, as they affect the economic, social and natural landscapes. She is trained as an empirical economist with specialization in industrial organization; while her research spans multiple areas, including energy, infrastructure, natural resources, and platforms. Nehan primarily engage data and narrative to understand how firms and individuals respond to incentives, under differently built environments. She is particularly interested in analyzing agents' relationships at the intersection of market design and innovation. In studying suppliers’ attitudes, one of her projects looks at the effectiveness of long term auctions in electricity markets in ensuring future energy reliability in the US, while another one looks at the different types of fishing vessels that are landing their catch in Scotland as a result of technological upgrade at those fish auction facilities. Nehan is also researching the impact of greater consumer engagement in finance (through fintech) and energy markets (via micro grids and demand response), as facilitated by technology. In other strands of her scholarship, the themes of infrastructure investments and business location choices (or lack thereof) remain instrumental as mechanisms for measuring welfare.
