My research interests revolve around the idea of reducing the amount of fossil energy needed to provide for a comfortable life. Currently my research is focused on the conversion of hydrogen from waste biomass. My thesis is a spatial economic optimization of an infrastructure to produce hydrogen from agricultural residues.
