I am an AAAS Science, Technology and Policy Fellow for Building Decarbonization in the Building Technologies Office. I was a Senior Scientist and the Group Lead of the Built Environment Characterization Group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (2017-2022), and a tenured Associate Professor at University of Southern Mississippi (2008-2017). My research is in energy and community resilience from the perspective of climate and energy security and policy focus on supply chain modeling of energy resources; restoration modeling of power outages; risk informed energy resilience modeling to achieve equitable and affordable energy access; application of AI to model energy consumption. I was a recipient of the 2019 Emerging Scholar Award from the American Association of Geographers and a fellow of the 2009 NSF’s Enabling the Next Generation of Hazards and Disasters Researchers Fellowship Program. I have been funded by NASA, NSF, DOE and DHS.
