About me

Originally from the far northern reaches of Upper Michigan, I am now based in Stockholm, Sweden as a Postdoc in the ENSEED Research Group. My work is focused on sustainable energy systems with the goal of empowering individuals with information and technology to take matters into their own hands.

More specifically, my research is focused on electrical and thermal energy supply in buildings and cities and stems from solar photovoltaic (PV) integration. Technologically, integration extends into heat pumps, stationary batteries, electric vehicles, solar thermal collectors, and seasonal thermal storage. Socio-economically, integration means using traditional engineering economics, business model innovation, energy policy, and decision making behavior. I'm a big fan of stochastic modeling techniques and using probabilistic tools in place of deterministic analysis.
