DGE Research Scientists

Short Name: 

Tyler Ruggles

I am a scientist studying low carbon energy transitions. How do we create a low carbon energy system? What could that system look like? What technological breakthroughs are necessary? These are some of the questions which motivate my research.

My current work focuses on studying the interannual variability of renewable energy resources and potential consequences for a highly-renewable grid. I also model the conversion of electric power to liquid fuels or hydrogen to study the benefits these technologies can bring to the grid including increased flexibility.

Lei Duan

Lei Duan's research topic is about modeling the climate response to external forcing, especially the global scale geoengineering schemes during his PhD. At Carnegie, he will continue working on climate simulations and also helping with the energy modeling work in Ken Caldeira's group. He had a wonderful experience when he was here previously, and feels happy to come back and work with everyone in Carnegie. 

Jennifer Johnson

Dr. Jennifer E. Johnson is a Research Associate in the Department of Global Ecology at the Carnegie Institution for Science. She is broadly interested in physiological processes, and particularly in photosynthesis and respiration–from how they work at a molecular level to how to monitor their aggregate global activity.
