Catherine P. Koshland is the Vice Provost of Academic Planning and Facilities at the University of California, Berkeley, and is the Wood-Calvert Professor in Engineering. She is a professor of Environmental Health Sciences in the School of Public Health and a professor in the Energy and Resources Group. She joined the Berkeley faculty in 1984. In 1999, she joined a distinguished group when she presented the Nineteenth Annual Steven Manly Memorial Lecturer at the University of California at Santa Barbara.
Duncan Callaway has accepted our offer to join ERG's core faculty. Duncan holds a PhD from Cornell in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics with a minor in Applied Mathematics (May 2001). He also holds a B.S. from the University of Rochester in Mechanical Engineering (1995). He is currently an Assistant Research Scientist in the School of Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Michigan and an Assistant Research Scientist (by courtesy) in Michigan’s Department of Mechanical Engineering.
Steve Weissman came to Berkeley Law from the California Public Utilities Commission where he was an administrative law judge. He also served as policy and legal advisor to three different commissioners at the PUC. He is an energy and environmental attorney, and an environmental mediator. Prior to his appointment as an administrative law judge in 1988, he was a staff attorney at the PUC, working on renewable energy and energy efficiency proceedings, as well as cases involving implementation of the California Environmental Quality Act.
Ashok Gadgil has the following research interests: Transport processes affecting indoor air and airborne pollutants. Modeling of population exposures to airborne pollutants. Disinfection of, and arsenic removal from, drinking water for developing countries. Economic analyses of energy efficiency opportunities in developing countries.
Levine is Division Director of the Environmental Energy Technologies Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). He received his Ph.D. in chemistry from UC Berkeley. He was a Fulbright scholar in Germany. Before joining LBNL in 1978, he was a staff scientist at the Ford Foundation Energy Project in Washington, D.C., and a senior energy policy analyst at SRI, International in Menlo Park.
Chris Marnay has worked for 24 years at Berkeley Lab, where he leads the Forecasting group within the Environmental Energy Technologies Division. He models restructured electricity markets, especially related to problems concerning likely future adoption patterns of small-scale distributed energy resources (DER). He was a member of the Consortium of Electric Reliability Solutions (CERTS) that proposed the CERTS Microgrid concept. His team has since developed methods for the economic evaluation of microgrids.
Dr. James E. ("Jim") McMahon received a B.S. in Chemistry from Providence College and a Ph.D. in Molecular Biophysics from Florida State University. He is Head of the Energy Analysis Department, Co-chair of the Water Energy Technology Team and Leader of the Energy Efficiency Standards Group in the Environmental Energy Technology Division at the Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) at the University of California in Berkeley.
Evan Mills a member of the international body of scientists known as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which collectively shared in the Nobel Peace Prize for 2007 with former U.S. Vice President Albert Arnold (Al) Gore Jr. "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change."
