Since completing my fellowship with Vineyard Power Cooperative, where I designed and conducted a collaborative offshore wind site selection process, I have relocated to Boston with my wife Cara. I have since begun working at the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, a quasi-state agency dedicated to accelerating the development of the clean energy industry in Massachusetts. As a Project Manager in the Renewable Energy Generation Division, I am involved with a number of activities related to our land-based and offshore wind energy programs and manage the organization’s Geographic Information Systems resources. I am pleased to note that this position has allowed me to extend much of the work that I began during my fellowship to provide support for appropriate wind energy development in principle and in practice.
As a fellow, I was enrolled in a post-baccalaureate certificate program to study Geographic Information Systems through Penn State. I pursued additional learning opportunities through organizations such as the Consensus Building Institute in Cambridge to explore different group decision strategies, and Clark Labs in Worcester, a geospatial research and development lab associated with Clark University.
