I am Associate Professor in the Department of Energy Resources Engineering. I also serve as co-Director for the Climate and Energy Decision Making (CEDM) Center. My work focuses on how to transition to sustainable, realistically feasible, and equitable energy systems. I am passionate about solving problems that include environmental, technical, economic, and policy issues, where traditional engineering approaches play an important role but cannot provide a complete answer. In particular, I am interested in assessing how energy systems are likely to evolve, which requires comprehensive knowledge of the technologies that can address future energy needs and the decision-making process followed by various agents in the economy.
