I am an Assistant Professor in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Carleton University in Ottawa, where I co-lead the APEX research group, which is devoted to identifying and analyzing Alternative Pathways for the Energy Transition.

I used mixed-method research to model the transition to a deeply decarbonized, sustainable energy system. A hallmark of my work is the incorporation of large, empirical data sets from industry, government, and my original behavioral survey work—ensuring that results are meaningful, translatable into practice, and sympathetic to societal preferences. For modeling efforts where robust data sets do not yet exist, I develop my own through extensive database building.
