C. Lindsay Anderson Interim Director, Cornell Energy Systems Institute
Professor Anderson’s research interests focus on the application of systems modeling and optimization to energy and the environment. Current projects include mitigation of wind generation uncertainty through the use of other renewable energy sources, the cost of wind energy uncertainty on existing power systems, and the implications of process uncertainties in biofuels production outcomes.
Oliver GaoAssociate Director
Quantitative modeling and development of engineering systems solutions for sustainable and intelligent infrastructure and lifeline systems; low carbon and low emission transportation systems, and the closely related environment (especially air quality and climate change); energy systems; alternative transportation/energy technologies, systems innovation, and green supply chain and logistics (e.g. sustainable food systems, quantifying and mitigating green-house gas emissions from food supply chains)
Teresa JordanAssociate Director
Assessments of geothermal energy resource potential in sedimentary rocks of the Appalachian Basin; location-specific analyses of subsurface conditions to evaluate risks and benefits; subsurface geological conditions of region near Cornell Campus, in preparation for proposed Earth Source Heat geothermal demonstration project that is intended to help achieve Cornell’s carbon neutrality goal.
David MullerAssociate Director
Atomic-scale characterization and control of matter for applications in energy storage and conversion, with a current focus on battery and fuel cell electric vehicles
Fengqi YouAssociate Director
Analysis, design, and optimization of energy systems, including biofuels processes, photovoltaics, carbon capture and separation, and shale gas; battery systems engineering; energy-water-food-waste nexus; leveraging big data analytics for sustainability analysis and optimization under deep uncertainty; sustainability analysis of nanotechnology and advanced materials
