About me / Places I've livedI am the lead author of the Switch power system planning model. I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Hawaii, Manoa, specializing in optimal design of power systems with large shares of renewable energy (up to 100%). I also participate in regulatory processes seeking to ensure that power systems move toward renewable energy at the lowest cost, and I study how to use demand-side response to help balance these power systems (e.g., charging electric vehicles automatically during sunny or windy times of day).
