Our group conducts interdisciplinary research to answer three important questions:

  • What are the environmental impacts of new technologies and industrial development?
  • How to optimize a complex industrial system to balance economic, social, and environmental considerations?
  • How to sustainably utilize renewable resources to produce energy and advanced materials?

We use interdisciplinary approaches in industrial ecology, sustainable engineering, and machine learning to develop systems analysis tools to support engineering and policy decisions towards sustainability. Our group develops new methods and integrated modeling frameworks to assess, advance, and optimize industrial systems for improved environmental and societal outcomes.
