About:

Landry is an assistant professor of environmental and energy economics. He started at Penn State in 2014. Prior to that, he earned two B.A.s in economics and political science from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, an M.S. in public policy from the University of Maryland at College Park, and a Ph.D. in applied economics from Cornell University. Landry’s research examines when and why large-scale public policies related to energy and the environment succeed or fail. While governments often claim to choose public policies that will improve the welfare of their citizens, often these efforts are inadequate and may even make things worse. His research bridges the fields of political economy, public finance, and environmental and energy economics to examine such imperfect public policies that seek to address two of society’s most pressing challenges: addressing anthropogenic climate change and ensuring access to affordable, clean energy for all citizens.
