Why I Work at the Institute

Simple. I love hard problems to solve and the opportunity to work with really smart people.

My skills in IT, business process performance improvement and supply chain optimization are a good fit. I can make a big contribution, and that is very satisfying.

My dream is to help turn the engines of free enterprise – corporations,
innovators and entrepreneurs – on to addressing the challenges of energy and climate change.
