Area(s) of Expertise

My research program is focused on addressing energy and environmental challenges at the intersection of engineering, economics, and public policy. My primary focus is the development and application of energy system models to analyze how energy technology and public policy can mitigate climate change and shape a sustainable future. With regard to energy modeling, I am particularly interested in the development and utilization of open source models to maximize transparency as well as the use of high performance computing to conduct rigorous uncertainty analysis. I am currently working on other research topics, including the economics of marine energy technologies, life cycle assessment of buildings, and solid waste management in a carbon constrained world.
