Janelle Knox-Hayes is an assistant professor in the school of Public Policy at the Georgia Institute of Technology. She is interested in the political and economic dynamics underpinning energy transition and sustainable development. Her current research focuses on the institutional development of carbon emissions markets in the United States and Europe, with particular emphasis on the economic and policy drivers that develop these markets as well as their impact on social and economic systems. She is concurrently developing a project to investigate the role markets play in communicating social values. Although her research has focused on the United States and Europe, she is interested in expanding this research to Asia to investigate the role of institutional transfer and cultural context on market development. In addition she has conducted research which map and describes the socio-demographic characteristics of UK pension entitlements.
Dr. Knox-Hayes is a research associate at the Oxford University Department of Geography and Environment, where she is involved in ongoing CSR and pension entitlements projects. Dr. Knox-Hayes is a member of The Association of American Geographers (AAG), the Academy of Management (AOM) and the International Studies Association (ISA).
Dr. Knox-Hayes joined the School of Public Policy after completing her PhD in Economic Geography at the University of Oxford. Her dissertation research investigated the development of carbon emissions markets looking through the lens of regulatory and financial service institutions, with the use of surveys, interviews, and close-dialogue. This project was funded by the National Science Foundation through a Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant. This project has resulted in a peer reviewed article at the Journal of Economic Geography and several articles that are under review.
