Noah Dormady is an associate professor of public policy at the John Glenn College of Public Affairs at Ohio State.  He works in two main areas: energy and environmental markets, and economic analysis of disasters and disaster resilience.

His work on the economic analysis of resilience has focused on the impacts of terrorism events and natural hazards on regional economies.  This work provides insights and strategies for businesses and governments to minimize the severity of disasters and to hasten recovery thereafter.

His energy and environmental work evaluates the interactions between deregulated power markets and market-based emissions policies (i.e., cap & trade).  His work in this area focuses mainly on the economic efficiency of market design and issues of competition under market power and oligopolistic behavior.

He received his PhD from the University of Southern California (in Los Angeles) from the Price School of Public Policy.  Prior to this, he worked for the United States Senate and was an adjunct professor of Political Science at two colleges in Southern California.

He has worked for a variety of clients and has received research grants and support from an array of sources.  These include the National Science Foundation, GE Capital, the John Randolph and Dora Haynes Foundation, the State of California, the State of Pennsylvania, the Southern Governors Association, and the Center for Climate Strategies.

His work has been published in a broad array of government publications and academic peer-reviewed journals, including Risk Analysis, Energy Economics, The Energy JournalEnergy Policy, Regional Science Policy and Practice, and the Journal of Sustainable Energy Engineering.
