Carlos A. Murillo, BA'08 (Economics, International Relations)


Carlos A. Murillo graduated in 2008 with a Double Major in Economics (Applied Energy Economics Concentration), and International Relations. He is currently completing a Master of Science (MSc) degree in Sustainable Energy Development (SEDV) at the Haskayne School of Business. In addition to his studies he works full time as an Economic Researcher at the Canadian Energy Research Institute (CERI). His primary role is to gather and analyze data in order to create models that help explain complex, current, and relevant issues faced by the energy industry in Canada, in an objective and independent manner. This involves making use of knowledge across various disciplines (such as economics and sciences), within a team environment. The results and findings are presented in a logical, concise, and clear manner, primarily via peer-reviewed publicly-available written reports, but also through public forums such as conferences.
