Juan Rosellón, Ph.D., is a nonresident fellow for the Center for Energy Studies and a professor of economics at the Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas in Mexico City. He is also a research fellow at both the German Institute for Economic Research in Berlin and the Universidad Panamericana in Mexico City. Rosellón is a board member of the Mexican Electricity ISO, co-editor of “Economics of Energy and Environmental Policy” and on the editorial board of "The Energy Journal" and the “Review of Network Economics.” He is an expert on the economic regulation of energy networks, with almost 25 years of experience in the field.

Rosellón’s research focuses on incentive regulatory mechanisms for electricity as well as natural gas markets and networks. He has designed various mechanisms that promote the expansion of energy networks as well as regulate monopolies through price cap or benchmark pricing. His analysis has been applied to diverse international energy markets in Ontario, PJM, Mexico, Peru and northwestern Europe. He has gained wide recognition for his research, receiving the Marie-Curie IIF Fellowship (European Union), the 4th Reimut Jochimsen Prize (German Central Bank), and the Repsol-YPF-Harvard-Kennedy-School Fellowship. In spring 2017, he will hold the Mexico Studies Chair at the University of Southern California Price School of Public Policy. Rosellón earned a Ph.D in economics from Rice University.
