I am specialize in transportation, energy, and electricity systems -- employing my education and experience in engineering and economics to conduct analysis from a truly cross-disciplinary perspective. I have expertise using diverse methodological tools including: network science; mathematical programming and multi-objective optimization; multi-stakeholder policy analysis; and computable general equilibrium modeling.
I have an advanced degree in Transportation and Infrastructure Engineering and a doctorate in Energy, Resource, and Environmental Economics. I am currently a James S. McDonnell Postdoctoral Fellow in Studying Complex Systems at Stanford University.
While at Purdue I co-wrote grants worth over $440k in total funding; published one report to the U.S. Congress, two journal articles, three technical reports, and five conference papers (more publications forthcoming); and received field-specific, national, and international awards. Of note is being selected as one of the top 480 students from 80 countries to attend the Lindau Meeting of Nobel Laureates in Economic Sciences.
I have also held multiple leadership positions in my undergraduate studies in the Student Space Systems Fabrication Laboratory (S3FL) at the University of Michigan and in my graduate studies as a representative on the graduate student senate, co-founder of the ASCE Vision 2025 group, and co-founder of TEDxPurdueU.
Prior to my PhD I worked at Northrop Grumman Space Technology as a systems engineer and at the Congressional Research Service as a transport policy research associate.
