Steve earned his master of science in economics at Boise State University in 2020, following a bachelor’s degree in quantitative economics with a minor in applied mathematics. As a graduate student, Steve worked for the Center for Advanced Energy Studies at Boise State as well as providing graduate assistance to Professor Guido Giuntini and research assistance to Jayash Paudel, Ph.D.
Steve is teaching Principles of Microeconomics in the fall and Principles of Macroeconomics in the spring. Steve’s focus areas include sustainability, localized economic growth, renewable energy, real estate markets, emergence in complex systems, machine learning, data science and engineering, and Python programming.
Steve has completed research projects involving distributed solar networks, real estate valuation, real estate taxation and is currently working on an urban land expansion growth accounting project. He has presented research projects with Boise State faculty members Guido Giuntini and Anne Walker to the City of Mountain Home and the Idaho Tax Commission, and is an affiliate of the Energy Policy Institute at Boise State.
Steve Hall has been named Energy Chapter Lead for the Idaho Climate-Economy Impacts Assessment, continuing the work begun by Thomas Ptak of the University of Idaho. The project is convened by The McClure Center at the University of Idaho and involves over 100 researchers from Idaho who work to identify how changes in climate will likely affect agriculture, energy, human health, recreation, tourism and infrastructure. Steve will not only look at the risks climate change poses in the energy sector, but also identify and quantify opportunities for innovation, economic development and job creation in relation to Idaho’s energy needs. He looks forward to working with researchers across the state, and partnering with Boise State and University of Idaho faculty, as well as multiple Idaho stakeholders to complete the project.
“The Idaho Climate-Economy Impacts Assessment will connect the latest scientific research on Idaho’s changing climate with economic risks and opportunities that impact businesses, residents and local and state economies. With the participation of researchers representing Idaho universities and colleges, businesses, non-profits, and tribal and other governments, the findings and recommendations from the assessment will allow Idaho to start planning now for a productive, resilient future.”
