Natural Gas Emissions and Leakage
Environmental Assessment & Optimization Group
The group focuses on building tools to reduce the environmental impacts of energy systems. One focus is on understanding greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) from fossil energy systems. Also, we build optimization tools to improve the environmental and economic performance of energy systems. Our approach includes building engineering-based bottom-up life cycle assessment (LCA) models to generate rigorous estimates of environmental impacts from energy extraction and conversion technologies. In optimization areas, we focus on renewable-fossil hybridization and integration.
Micro Structures & Sensors Lab
The group's research focus in the area of Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) leverages silicon microfabrication techniques to create micro-devices that include ultra-stable timing references and high-performance sensors. Recent work encompasses the design, optimization, and effective realization of high-performance MEMS devices, as well as the integration of various types of sensors.
