About Me

My current position is Senior Associate at The Cadmus Group.  Recent projects involve evaluating demand side efficiency measures and technologies, interfacing with IOU-funded energy efficiency programs, and performing billing data analysis.


Prior to joining Cadmus, I served as the energy efficiency Research Director at Sustainable Engineering Group. I have also held Research Scientist positions at Eureka Scientific, Michigan State University and the University of Virginia.  I have a Master’s degree in Physics from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and a Ph.D. in Astrophysics and Planetary Science from The University of Colorado at Boulder.


As this website will demonstrate, a successful research career requires performing multiple job roles and mastering a diverse set of skills.  Many of the tasks scientists are responsible for executing are those performed by evaluation consultants, physical modelers, engineers, financial analysts, project managers, and technical writers. 


My mission is to devote my time, abilities, and expertise to combat climate change and contribute to our transition to a low-carbon society. I will approach this task by leveraging a unique blend of analytical, personal, and communication skills. My ambition is to maximize my positive impact on the world by advancing practical, solutions-based market transformation.
