Research Interests: 

I am interested in sustainable energy systems in the built environment, particularly for local school districts. In my future career, I hope to help schools analyze demand-side electricity consumption and provide affordable and renewable energy options to lower their utility bills and carbon footprint, while simultaneously encouraging behavior change.  I believe schools are drivers for change. I am confident that we can maximize our environmental impact by focusing on institutions whose purpose is to develop a responsible and future-oriented student body.
