Sustainable Energy Systems

The Sustainable Energy System (SES) Group strives to understand energy systems and their environmental and health impacts.  We use a multidisciplinary approach to study problems of diverse topics and applications.  Group members have backgrounds in engineering, sciences, economics, statistics, and public health. 

Current Topics include:Climate diagram

  • Water-energy interactions
  • Energy economics
  • Resource and Life Cycle Assessment
  • Human and environmental health risk
  • Indoor Environment modeling and hazard assessment
  • Primary and Secondary Aerosols
  • Ozone Production
  • Urban Meteorology and Energy Balance
  • Anthropogenic Greenhouse Gas Emissions
