Current projects: Analysis of energy efficiency standards for residential and commercial central A/C and heat pumps; furnaces; distribution transformers; residential clothes washers; and electric motors. Analysis of national water and cost savings attributable to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense labeling program.
Education: M.S. Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (University of California, Berkeley); B.S. Mathematics (University of Washington).
Expertise: Development of life-cycle cost spreadsheet models, including Monte-Carlo simulations allowing the specification of uncertainties and distributions on key parameters that affect the results; development of spreadsheet models to calculate the national economic and energy impacts of energy efficiency policies; use of the NEMS model to produce environmental and utility impact assessments.
