Anshuman (Ansu) Sahoo is a Research Associate at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and Research Fellow at the Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance. In his research, Ansu uses economic theory, econometrics, and the tools of operations research to address issues related to energy and environmental technology. Specifically, he develops and applies methods to study the cost-effectiveness of alternative carbon mitigation strategies and policies to support them. This work encompasses two streams. One track examines the behavior of firms and primarily constructs cost models and metrics to predict competitiveness. His recent research in this area spans the upstream and downstream components of the renewable energy supply chain. In his other research stream, Ansu builds choice models to investigate consumer behavior and demand dynamics.
Previously, Ansu was 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 as well as a B.S.E. in Chemical Engineering from Princeton University.
