Baker Graduate Fellow
Becky Davis is a PhD candidate in economics at the University of Tennessee and works as a graduate research assistant for the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy. Her research is funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation under a Pre-Doctoral Fellowship on Energy Economics awarded to the National Bureau of Economic Research.
Her research is primarily focused on energy economics and its place in environmental economics and public policy. Working within these fields has provided her with several tools to answer research questions. Some of these include extensive use of real options analysis in Matlab, applied econometrics in Stata, and optimal control theory. She also has experience with interdisciplinary work, mainly through a discussion seminar following the Baker Energy and Environment Forum at the University of Tennessee.
Her teaching interest spans several fields of study in economics. She has had full control and sole responsibility as the instructor for one section of Econ 311: Intermediate Microeconomics and one section of Econ 313: Intermediate Macroeconomics at the University of Tennessee. She has also been a graduate teaching assistant for Econ 511: Microeconomic Theory and Econ 201: Introductory Economics (Micro/Macro) at the University of Tennessee.
