Zack Subin is an Associate Research Director for the Terner Center for Housing Innovation, leading research at the intersection of climate and housing topics. He is particularly interested in better quantifying the role of housing policy reforms in supporting climate policy goals, and in identifying approaches which co-optimize for housing affordability and climate mitigation. Zack previously conducted climate policy analysis at RMI and Energy + Environmental Economics (E3), focusing on deep decarbonization pathways, building electrification, and urbanism. He has a PhD in Energy and Resources from the University of California, Berkeley and conducted climate science research at national laboratories in Berkeley and Princeton, investigating terrestrial ecosystem feedbacks to climate change in earth system models. He also has an MPP from Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy and a BA in Physics and Math from Harvard University.
