Working with this supervisor

I am currently seeking students interested in taking a systems perspective to evaluate the GHG mitigation potential of new technologies in the buildings and transportation sectors. Interested students should email me with a current CV and a 1-2 page statement in which you describe your goals for graduate school and a brief proposal of a potential research project that fits within the research areas described above.
