"For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by the interplay of energy, technology, and the environment. Slight imbalances between supply and demand of electricity, crude oil, and natural gas are responsible for large swings in price. During my 30 years working in energy, I have ventured into some of the most challenging areas: tars sands, hydraulically fractured wells, shale gas, carbon sequestration, and large-scale solar. My research is motivated by the desire to mitigate negative impacts of large-scale energy production while meeting the energy challenge, especially decarbonization. I teach courses that range from the fundamentals of renewable power to the thermodynamics of mixtures of hydrocarbons. I believe that students need to be equipped with facts and intellectual tools to make wise choices regarding energy. I have taught at Stanford since 1996. My degrees are in Chemical Engineering from the University of Washington and UC Berkeley."
