I am currently a Staff Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and also serve as Director of Technoeconomic Analysis at the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) . My JBEI team’s website can be found here. I also recently joined UC Berkeley as an Assistant Researcher and Head of Sustainability Analysis at the Energy Biosciences Institute.
I received a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from UC Berkeley in December 2010 under the advisement of Professor Arpad Horvath. My dissertation title is “Life-Cycle Water Impacts of U.S. Transportation Fuels” and the full text can be accessed here. I also completed an M.S. at UC Berkeley in May 2008 in Civil Engineering, and a B.S. in Civil Engineering with a double major in Engineering and Public Policy (EPP) at Carnegie Mellon University in December 2006. My current work focuses on the greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint of producing advanced biofuels, GHG and health impacts of county-level modeling of EV/PHEV adoption, and end-of-life management for Li-ion automotive batteries.
