Inspired by the possibility of ecologically-bounded growth, Grace works on water and land use impacts of energy technologies; socially and environmentally responsible energy planning; and the role of policy analysis in decision-making. She merges life cycle assessment, GIS, and optimization methods to anticipate non-GHG environmental impacts of electricity generation. Recently, she has worked with the International Renewable Energy Agency on identifying opportunities for low-impact, cost-effective wind and solar development in many countries in Africa and with the California Public Utilities Commission on California’s water-energy nexus. Grace holds an M.S. in Energy and Resources (UC Berkeley), an M.Phil. in Evolutionary Genetics/Bioinformatics (University of Cambridge), and B.A.s in Biology and History (Pomona College).
