I have twelve years of industry experience developing personal cooling, miniature refrigeration, evaporative spray cooling, thermal management, and thermal energy storage technologies. I also have a life-long interest in renewable energy, which I was able to study more in depth in my dissertation entitled “Renewable Energy in Community: Economic Impacts of the Grid” including a couple open access published papers linked below.
