He had industry experience as a risk analyst at AIG and Hyundai Motor Company, where he launched a greenhouse gas emissions inventory with his colleagues.
Yeong Jae Kim is an applied economist whose research focuses on the economics of energy innovation and energy efficiency. His research interests lie in conducting an ex-post analysis of energy policies, particularly energy efficiency policies. He is investigating the connections between energy policies and the pace and direction of technological innovation using patent data. A key question that he is attempting to answer in his research is the different role of energy-efficiency policies in technological innovation, especially CFL and LED light bulbs, refrigerators, and buildings. He is also working on developing an empirical relationship between energy technology innovation systems and key innovation processes.
