I am an Environmental Fellow hosted by the Harvard University Center for the Environment in the Salata Institute for Climate and Sustainability and the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. I received my doctorate in Electrical Engineering from ETH Zürich. My research uses tools from operations research, electrical engineering, and economics to design decarbonized energy systems, with a focus on power systems operations and planning. I received the S.M. in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science and S.M. in Technology & Policy from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a B.S.E. from Princeton University. I am also a Resident Tutor in the Dudley Community at Harvard.
