Postdoctoral Research Fellow Stanford, Energy Science & Engineering, Stanford University

I study the role of hydrocarbon fuels in a rapidly decarbonizing economy. I'm a "pick important problems first and figure out the best methods later" kind of researcher, drawing on my expertise in techno-economic assessment, machine learning and applied statistics, econometrics, optimization, and various engineering subdisciplines along the way. My current focus is assessing and demonstrating the value of diverse methane emission sensing and mitigation technologies across the oil and gas value chain in an increasingly data-rich environment.

Research Interests

Methane emissions detection and mitigation, energy policy analysis, energy modeling, climate change mitigation, econometrics, machine learning, quantification of uncertainty
