Postdoctoral researcher in industrial energy modeling


My current focus is modeling industrial systems. Proficient in Python, R and MATLAB. Open source and transparency enthusiast. LCA and input-output. I love to communicate and enjoy writing for all audiences. My motivation is in preserving the environment where it joins up with human civilization. Sustainability to me is not only about abstract concepts and ideals but about understanding real people’s needs and concerns. It is about equity today, and protecting our children. I find that environmental issues bring people together, and I love working with others to build consensus and to see things in new ways.
