Research Interests

I am interested in reducing the environmental impacts of energy systems. More specifically, I study greenhouse gas emissions from fossil energy sources. This is important because fossil energy sources will continue to be key components of our energy system for decades to come.

For more recent research activities please see the website for our new research group, the Environmental Assessment and Optimization group.

Through my teaching, I aim to help train the next generation of energy professionals to:

  • Optimize energy systems so as to improve their efficiency
  • Rigorously account for the environmental impacts of energy sources
  • Think critically about systems-scale phenomena in energy production and consumption

For more detail, please see my curriculum vitae.
