Biography

Professor Langer studies how consumers make decisions that affect the environment and how those decisions affect efficient policy design.  In particular, she has studied how consumers make decisions over whether to purchase residential solar systems, which vehicles to drive, where to drive, how aggressively to drive, and how consumers choose when and where to purchase gasoline.  These questions have substantial implications for the design of energy policy from solar panel and alternative fuel vehicle subsidies to vehicle miles traveled and gasoline taxes.  Professor Langer’s research also informs policies that aim to stimulate technological growth such as Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards and connected vehicle technology subsidies.
