Transportation Research Analyst
Marcelo works on air pollution issues related to seaports and the freight movement sector of transportation, particularly at the Port of Houston. He has developed and analyzed metrics for estimating emissions at ports, worked with EDF’s corporate partners on leveraging their support for pollution mitigation programs, conducted an evaluation of clean truck programs, and partnered with the U.S. EPA and other federal agencies on transportation sustainability. Marcelo’s main issues are criteria pollutant emissions and their localized health effects, especially how they affect environmental justice communities, trade shifts and growth associated with the Panama Canal expansion, and measurement and evaluation of seaport environmental programs.
Prior to joining EDF, Marcelo worked in Peru with Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA), a U.S.-based development economics research organization which conducts studies on policies such as education reform and issues such as social network linkages using randomized controlled trial methodology.
