I am a chemist by training, an ad hoc social scientist, and a practitioner of impact assessment for investments in early-stage climate solutions in my role as Director of Impact at Prime Coalition.
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 protecting the future of the planet. Through my work, I aim to accelerate energy innovation and help game-changing ideas find their way out of the lab and into the marketplace.
It is also critically important to change the way science is taught and shared. The scientific community should be diverse and inclusive of people from all different backgrounds. We need the most talented minds to be trained and empowered to tackle the complex problems facing society. My teaching and outreach efforts are driven by a desire to make science truly accessible to everyone.
