Dr. Bohi is a successful economist, educator and author who since retired in 2004 as the vice president of Charles River Associates (CRA) after contributing for 10 years within the organization. A leading global consulting firm, CRA offers economic, financial, and strategic expertise to major law firms, corporations, accounting firms and governments around the world.

He also held a joint appointment within the energy division of the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) as a senior research scientist for economic policy.
Between 1987 and 1988, Dr. Bohi was on leave from the RFF to serve as the chief economist and director of the Office of Economic Policy at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. There, he was responsible for advising the commission on the economic matters related to the regulation of the natural gas and electricity industry. He also managed the commission's effort to recommend changes in the regulation of electricity designed to make the industry more responsive to market forces, to substitute competitive forces for regulation where possible and to reduce the economic costs of regulation. In earlier years, Dr. Bohi excelled as an economist for Caterpillar Company in Illinois between 1969 and 1970 and a professor of economics as well as the department chairman at Southern Illinois University for close to a decade between 1970 and 1978.

Dr. Bohi is renowned for his work in energy and natural resources, especially in the areas of oil markets and energy security, energy demand modeling and regulatory issues related to electric power. He has notably conducted extensive research on the economic behavior of energy markets, the relationship between energy and the economy and the regulation of natural gas and electricity industries. Additionally, Dr. Bohi played a major role in ORNL's work with the Commission of the European Communities to assess the external cost of electric power. The study addressed environmental and other costs that result from production and use of electricity. He twice appeared in videos on the C-SPAN video library for his expertise in 1990 and again in 1992.
A gifted writer, Dr. Bohi has published several books, co-authoring "Limiting Oil Imports" in 1978.
