About

The world urgently needs low-carbon energy solutions to minimize the disastrous effects of a changing climate. These solutions must be developed and deployed without delay, to provide energy access to a growing population while also protecting the future of the planet. Through my research, I aim to accelerate energy innovation and help game-changing ideas find their way out of the lab and into the marketplace.

I also hope to improve the way science is taught and shared with others. In order to provide the greatest public benefit, the scientific community must be diverse and inclusive of people from all different backgrounds. We need the most talented minds to thrive in order to tackle the technological problems facing society.
