Kamen Velichkov (A20) is a Quantitative Economics major who demonstrates initiative and a commitment to rigorous examination of the economics of energy regulatory policy. Described by Professor Gib Metcalf as “one of those extraordinary students who comes along every decade or so,” Kamen has already conducted original, empirical research. Kamen investigated the role of regulatory policy (CAFE standards) on innovation by acquiring ten years of patent data related to electric vehicles. Kamen’s independence of mind and strong work ethic is reflected in his near-perfect academic record.
