I am interested in better understanding the interaction between complex, interdependent infrastructure systems and the environment, particularly in the realm of energy and water. Ongoing projects include life-cycle modeling of cellulosic ethanol production scale-up in the United States, framework development for sustainable co-management of water and energy, and uncertainty quantification in life-cycle assessment of emerging technologies.
