Peter Brantley is the Director of Online Strategy for the University of California Davis Library. Previously, he was the Director of Digital Development at New York Public Library, and before that, Director of Scholarly Communication at the open source not-for-profit, Hypothes.is. He worked at the Internet Archive on policy issues and open standards. He convenes […]
Dr. Brewer focuses on all aspects of Internet-based systems, including technology, strategy, and government. As a researcher, he has led projects on scalable servers, search engines, network infrastructure, sensor networks, and security. His current focus is (high) technology for developing regions, with projects in India, Ghana, and Uganda among others, and including communications, health care, education, and e-government.
Karl Brown is Deputy Director of CIEE and Director for CIEE’s Energy Use in Buildings program. As Program Director, he plans and manages new technology demonstration efforts that are leading to deep reductions in energy consumption by buildings. Karl also helps develop energy policy for the University of California (UC), provides energy planning support for […]
My interests lie in astrophysical and geophysical fluid dynamics. I concentrate on the highly nonlinear, turbulent flow regimes, using high resolution numerical simulations for such studies. In particular, my research is currently focused on dynamos, where turbulence in an electrically-conducting fluid creates and maintains strong magnetic field, with a particular view to understanding the origin of magnetic activity of our Sun.
Since 1974, Dr. Andrew Burke’s career work has involved many aspects of electric and hybrid vehicle design, analysis, and testing. He was the head systems engineer on the U.S. Department of Energy–funded Hybrid Vehicle (HTV) project while working at the General Electric Research and Development Center in Schenectady, N.Y.
James Bushnell is Research Director at the University of California Energy Institute and a lecturer at U.C. Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. He received a Ph.D. in Operations Research from U.C. Berkeley in 1993. He has written extensively on the organization and competitiveness of electricity markets. Dr. Bushnell has served as a member of the Market Monitoring Committee of the California Power Exchange and is currently a member of the Market Surveillance Committee of the California ISO.
Duncan Callaway is the Assistant Faculty Director of the CITRIS Sustainable Infrastructures research thrust. Duncan received his PhD in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics from Cornell University in 2001 and subsequently held an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy at the University of California, Davis. He then spent 4 years working in the energy industry in senior engineering positions, first at Davis Energy Group and later at PowerLight Corporation. He was a member of the research faculty of the Center for Sustainable Systems at the University of Michigan from 2006-2009.
Elliott Campbell has already received nationwide attention for a recent study concluding that the United States could meet up to 6 percent of its energy needs with biofuels produced on “marginal” ag land.
“It’s been suggested that biofuels production on prime agricultural land could accelerate global climate change,” Campbell explained. “We looked at what we call marginal land – for example, farmlands in the Eastern U.S. that were abandoned as the center of agriculture shifted west.”
The laboratory of Dr. Manel Camps uses molecular genetic and computational approaches to study the biological consequences of random changes in genetic information mutations) that occur spontaneously or as a result of environmental insults. They couple the generation of random mutant libraries with specific selections or screens to study the functional impact of point mutations and to establish how genes evolve in response to selective pressure.
