Robert Mullin
Deputy Editor / Enterprise
Robert is a former editor with Argus Media, where he oversaw coverage of the U.S. electricity sector, compiled daily power price indexes, and followed developments in the West as a reporter. After a stint writing about California’s cap-and-trade system, he decided to return to the relative simplicity of covering organized energy markets. Robert holds an English degree from Tulane University and a master’s in economics from University College Dublin, where his coursework focused on European integration during the headier days of the project. He lives in Portland, Ore., with his wife, Christina, and son, Henry.
