Energy

In what seems like a previous life, I worked on energy and environment issues. I started this through my BA in Physics. I studied physics to understand the environmental effects of different energy technologies. This led to work at the Solar Energy Research Institute in 1980 and 1981 and then as a Staff Scientist in the Applied Energy Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in the early 80s. I came to Berkeley for the job at LBL, but then started a Masters’ degree in the Energy and Resources Group. My energy research led me to my work on charcoal – since I did not want to live life as an appendage to a database (which was the work at LBL) and I saw that most issues around energy conservation and use were not about the technology, but rather had to do with social and policy issues around who had access to the resources and decision making -- in markets and on the ground.
