Welcome to my group page. I am an associate professor in Civil & Environmental Engineering at MSU and an affiliated faculty in Environmental Science and Policy (ESPP). For more info about current and future group members.


Our group use proactive sustainability assessment to reduce the environmental impact of energy technologies. Process-based life-cycle assessment (LCA) is used to identify critical steps in current technologies and guide greener alternatives by combining theoretical environmental assessment and experimental work.

In addition to photovoltaics, we have research projects related to battery, nanomaterials synthesis, wastewater treatment and pavement. We are also interested in other opportunities for life-cycle assessment projects and sustainability related research.
