Lima Hossain brings a diverse background in econometrics, research, and environmental-natural resource economics to her work. She contributes to a variety of market research, distributed energy resources, and emerging technology projects at Cadeo. Recently, Lima developed an interactive participation dashboard with integrated GIS functionality for Rhode Island. She also led data collection and analysis for a commercial HVAC regional study and a locational-based GIS analysis to identify prioritization areas for community benefit targeting in Oregon.
Lima has also led several research and strategy initiatives focused on clean energy and equity policies in Oregon, Washington, California, and New York. Lima applies her skillsets in GIS to these efforts to obtain a deeper understanding of the spatial, geographical, and environmental factors that influence program participation within vulnerable populations. As clean energy/electrification policies increase nationally, her research insights help determine areas of improvement for programs that wish to reach underserved communities and establish whether the benefits are received by populations disproportionately impacted by climate change and pollution.
Before joining Cadeo, Lima worked at the Center for Regional Economic Advancement- Cornell University as a Programs Assistant providing logistical support, stakeholder engagement & communications, and event management across five entrepreneurship programs. Lima holds a B.A. in Mathematics-Economics from Ithaca College and M.S. in Applied Economics with a concentration in Environmental and Natural Resources from Oregon State University. In her spare time, Lima enjoys seeing live music, discovering new cafes, and hiking the many trails in the Pacific Northwest.
