Matthew Stepp

Senior Policy Analyst
Information Technology and Innovation Foundation

Matthew Stepp is a Senior Analyst with the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) specializing in climate change and clean energy policy. His research interests include clean energy technology development, climate science policy development, transportation policy, and the role innovation has in economic growth.

Before joining ITIF, he served as Fellow at the Breakthrough Institute, a think tank located in Oakland, California, focused on climate and energy policy issues. He worked on a report aimed at presenting an alternative strategy for building a US green economy through innovation-focused policies instead of the traditional approach of putting a price on carbon emissions.

Prior to this position, he graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology with a M.S. degree in Science, Technology, and Public Policy. His thesis focused on qualitatively and quantitatively modeling greenhouse gas reduction policy portfolios and highlighting opportunities for greater emission reductions due to system synergies. This work has been published in the Journal of Energy Policy and presented at both regional and stakeholder conferences. As a graduate student he was a Fellow with the Transportation Research Board at the National Academies of Science where he researched and analyzed light duty vehicle energy reduction policy strategies.

Matthew also has a B.S. in Meteorology from Millersville University where he conducted a wide range of research on the meteorological applications of synthetic radar and conducted climate modeling studies at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
