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.

Michael Mastrandrea

Michael Mastrandrea is the Director of Near Zero, which provides credible, impartial, and actionable climate and energy research and policy analysis. Previously, he helped lead development of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fifth Assessment Report, a global assessment of climate change science and policy options. His work has focused on strategies for reducing climate risks and integrating expert knowledge and quantitative analysis to inform public and private decisions from global to local scales.

Ari Kornfeld

Ari Kornfeld, a member of the Berry Lab, works at the intersection of plant physiological ecology, instrumentation, and software design. His current research focuses primarily on optical remote sensing of photosynthesis through the measurement and analysis of solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence.

Jennifer Johnson

Dr. Jennifer E. Johnson is a Research Associate in the Department of Global Ecology at the Carnegie Institution for Science. Her research is oriented toward building quantitative understanding of the processes that control the exchange of energy, water, and carbon dioxide between the terrestrial biosphere and the atmosphere, using a combination of measurements and models.

Bill Hayes

Bill creates programs to analyze data from climate models for Ken Caldeira and others in his lab.
After receiving his BSEE and MSEE from the University of Cincinnati in his home town he did his first professional work developing hardware and software for a Pediatric Cardiology research lab at Duke University. After working for many small companies in California he became a Systems Engineer at Siemens Oncology in Concord before joining Carnegie
He currently resides in Las Vegas tutoring Python online in his spare time.
