Dr. Reilly is the Associate Director for Research in the Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change at MIT. Much of his 20-year research career has focused on the economics of climate change, including modeling of energy use and carbon emissions and on the economic impacts of climate change on agriculture as well as consideration of agriculture and forestry sinks.

He has published numerous articles, books, and reports on the economics of climate change and on other issues related to natural resources, technology, and energy use and supply. He was a principal author for the IPCC Second Assessment Report and has served on many Federal government and international committees.

Prior to joining MIT in 1998, he spent 12 years with the Economic Research Service of USDA, most recently as the Acting Director and Deputy Director for Research of the Resource Economics Division. He has been a scientist with Battelle's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and with the Institute for Energy Analysis, Oak Ridge Associated Universities.

He received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Pennsylvania in 1983 and holds a B.S. in economics and political science from the University of Wisconsin and is a member of the American Economics Association.
