Now

A few things keep me busy these days:

Kids

  • Raising 2 young kids and spending 12 hours a day with them when their school is closed

Research

Big picture question

How can we achieve carbon neutrality by mid-century to address climate change?
How to make the clean energy transition more:

  • Sustainable (energy and environment)
  • Resilient (energy and climate)
  • Equitable (energy and justice)
  • I’m working with EDF on the Multi-Country Electricity Transition Potential and Challenges Project
  • I’m working on the climate, air pollution, and human health effect of imported solar PV supported by the ClimateWorks Foundation
  • I’m collaborating with LBL on power system decarbonization: we are organizing an Special Issue (The Electricity Journal) and a Workshop

Welcome collaborations on

  • Clean energy global supply chain
  • Power system decarbonization modeling
  • Climate impact on energy systems
  • Just energy transition
  • Energy-water-carbon nexus
  • Other interdisciplinary aspects of carbon neutrality
