Alyssa Meyer “Energy Access, Its Impacts on Living Standards in Kyrgyzstan, and the Importance of Research Abroad”

Thu, Mar 26, 12:00 pm
Ballantine Hall 004

Alyssa Meyer, a second year dual MPA/MA in CEUS and SPEA, will be giving a talk entitled “Energy Access, Its Impacts on Living Standards in Kyrgyzstan, and the Importance of Research Abroad” on Thursday, March 26th at noon in Ballantine Hall 004.

“Her brownbag talk “Energy Access, Its Impacts on Living Standards in Kyrgyzstan, and the Importance of Research Abroad”, will explore the ways in which a 2012-2013 Fulbright research grant impacted the evolution of her Master’s research on energy security in Kyrgyzstan. It will also include discussion of the current state and future plans for her work. While post-Soviet Central Asia has no shortage of energy supply, allocation of resources is dictated not by consumer demand, but, rather, by the interests of the elites seeking to gain revenue from them. Alyssa seeks to measure the impact of energy intermittencies on households in Kyrgyzstan."

This is a talk in the Graduate Student Brown Bag Talks, designed to allow students to share their research, work, experiences and goals with their peers.
