Won Young Park is a senior research associate at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). He is working on technical analysis for televisions, computer monitors, and lighting. In the studies, he assesses energy savings potential in efficiency improvement options, evaluates cost effectiveness of key technologies, and provides technical information and recommendations for policies and programs designed to accelerate the adoption of efficient technologies. He also supports a Korea project that demonstrates economic potential for energy efficiency improvement in appliances and equipment. Prior to LBNL, he worked at Samsung SDI, focusing on digital display technology and the alternate energy business. As a research engineer, he evaluated production data to optimize process ability and collaborated in the development of long-term roadmaps for Plasma Display technology. Studying at UC Berkeley, he specialized in life cycle carbon emissions analysis. Also, during his internship with the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) in Japan, he worked on a research project to identify proactive environmental policies in Asian developing countries. He received a Bachelor of Science in Physics from Yonsei University, Korea, and a Master of Public Policy from UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy.
