I am glad to be starting the peer review process on my first first-author publication, entitled “A computationally efficient Benders decomposition for energy systems planning problems with detailed operations and time-coupling constraints“. The draft has been co-authored with Filippo Pecci, Nestor Sepulveda, Qingyu Xu, and Jesse Jenkins. The preprint document is available here.
This past week, I was sent to Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, as an observer and member of Princeton University’s delegation at COP27. The trip was sponsored by Princeton’s Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment (C-PREE) and allowed me to sit in on climate negotiations, hear from phenomenal world leaders, speak to activists on […]
I had a great time at the Ivy+ conference at Columbia this past weekend. I attended with several other members of the Princeton Graduate Student Government; the session was an opportunity to discuss student life with leaders (students and administrators) at peer institutions. I participated in sessions on sustainability, housing, mental and physical well-being, innovation, […]
I was fortunate enough to have spent the past four months with the Office of Policy at the Department of Energy in Washington D.C. This summer was a chance to engage deeply with the science policy work which I have, until now, had to watch from a distance. The beginning of this internship had me […]
Our last PCS event of the academic year was a successful one. PCS members enjoyed the chance to hear more about AAAS programs and their associated application processes. I have heard back from a number of members that the session strengthened their resolve to apply for the fellowship post-graduation. I certainly share the sentiment, myself. […]
I was thrilled to arrange and lead the 2022 Princeton Citizen Scientists trip to Washington D.C. in tandem with my fantastic co-exec board. In this session, we met with staff at the Library of Congress and the National Academy of Sciences. We got a tour of the premises for the latter, as well. We had […]
Now that results have been ratified by the assembly and sent to the student body, I can announce that I was recently elected Academic Affairs Officer to the Princeton Graduate Student Government. This position will be a chance to work on two issues close to my heart, which were the core of my campaign materials: […]
I am thrilled to have contributed to this collaboration between the ZERO Lab and the REPEAT project and am deeply impressed with the results that the team pulled together. Zenodo publication information is available here.
This past week, a few fellow graduate students and I led a course on science policy and science communication. We concluded our course with a panel of faculty experts in academia and advocacy. One of the materials I created for the class was a worksheet that led students through effective policy communications. This morning, we […]
