The Yao lab builds analytical models to investigates how emerging technologies and industrial development will affect the environment and society.  We use transdisciplinary approaches in Industrial Ecology and Sustainable Engineering and link fundamental engineering systems with scaled economic, environmental, and social impacts.  We develop new methods and integrated modeling frameworks to assess, advance, and optimize industrial systems for a sustainable future!

Multiple openings are available for Ph.D students and postdoctoral scholars.
