It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our colleague Adam Schumacher. Adam was a member of the Brattle community for almost 17 years, most recently as an Associate. His work focused on the quantitative economic analysis of issues facing the electric utility industry.

Adam added an incredible wealth of knowledge, insight, and dedication to every project of which he was a part and he will be greatly missed.
