I research the sustainability of new technologies such as biofuels and electric vehicles. In my research I develop computer models to track the energy, materials, and money that go into producing and using a new technology. From these models, I calculate the environmental impact and economic feasibility of the technology. Common results include estimates of greenhouse gas emissions, water pollution, annual revenue, and a minimum selling price. Using these results, I compare the advantages of different technologies and identify areas for improvement. Through this research I intend to increase the economic success of technologies that have a low environmental impact.
