Geoscience Seminar: “Electricity Transitions in the USA”

Weyandt Hall, Rm. 006

Geoscience students and those interested in geoscience are welcome to attend Dr. Destenie Nock’s talk. Nock is an assistant professor in civil and environmental engineering, and in engineering and public policy (at Carnegie Mellon University. Her research is focused on applying optimization and decision analysis tools to evaluate the sustainability and reliability of the electricity grid in disparate energy systems.  Specifically, she uses mathematics to answer questions like “how can we make power systems more sustainable and equitable?”

This is part of our regular Geoscience Seminar Series.
