About Me

I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at University of California at Berkeley. I received a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from UC Berkeley in December 2015 under the advisement of Professor Arpad Horvath. My dissertation title is "Aggregation Errors in Life-Cycle Greenhouse Gas Assessments of Heavy-duty Trucks and Buses" and the full text can be accessed here. Previously, I received my MS from Berkeley and BS from Penn State University, both in CEE. My current work focuses on the greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint of producing advanced biofuels, modeling the spatial and temporal variability in the GHG footprint of water in California, and quantifying the "real world" fuel economy and GHG emissions from light-duty vehicles using remote monitoring technologies. In 2016, I will begin research on the CERC-WET research project, which is a US-China partnership focused on water use reduction, water treatment management, and understanding the climate impacts of energy-water systems.

I am passionate about conveying technical policy recommendations through data science and visualization. I have previously collaborated with the International Resource Panel of the United Nations, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Energy Biosciences Institute, California Air Resources Board, and the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California.
