Peter Huber is a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, where he writes on drug development, energy, technology, and the law. He is the author of The Cure in the Code: How 20th Century Law Is Undermining 21st Century Medicine (2013); The Bottomless Well: The Twilight of Fuel, the Virtue of Waste, and Why We Will Never Run Out of Energy (2005), coauthored with Mark P. Mills, which Bill Gates said “is the only book I’ve ever seen that really explains energy, its history and what it will be like going forward”; and Hard Green: Saving the Environment from the Environmentalists (2000), which William F. Buckley, Jr., called “the richest contribution ever made to the greening of the political mind” and which set out a new conservative manifesto on the environment that advocates a return to conservation and environmental policy based on sound science and market economics.

Huber’s other books include Judging Science: Scientific Knowledge and the Federal Courts (1999), Law and Disorder in Cyberspace: Abolish the FCC and Let Common Law Rule the Telecosm (1997), Orwell’s Revenge: The 1984 Palimpsest (1994), Galileo’s Revenge: Junk Science in the Courtroom (1991), and Liability: The Legal Revolution and Its Consequences (1988). He has published articles in scholarly journals, such as the Harvard Law Review and Yale Law Journal, and in such publications as Science, Wall Street Journal, Reason, Regulation, and National Review. He has appeared on numerous TV and radio programs, including Face the Nation and The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer.

Before joining MI, Huber was an associate professor at MIT. He clerked on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals for Ruth Bader Ginsburg and on the U.S. Supreme Court for Sandra Day O’Connor. Huber is a partner at the Washington, D.C., law firm Kellogg, Huber, Hansen and Todd. He holds a J.D. from Harvard University and a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from MIT.
