Allison Campbell joined the Energy Policy & Economics Group at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in 2019. Prior to this, she helped launch a Community Choice Aggregation program in Humboldt County, California, and lead data pipeline operations for Gemini Observatory in Chile. Allison has extensive experience with statistical analysis and numerical computational analysis. In addition to her projects at PNNL, she is working towards a Ph.D. in electricity load forecasting in the BigDEAL group at UNC Charlotte under the direction of Dr. Tao Hong.

Allison's work at PNNL is focused on integrating renewable generation using probabilistic time series analysis, development of co-simulation tools using HELICS, and causal inference to improve model specification.
