Micah S Ziegler is a postdoctoral associate in the Institute for Data, Systems, and Socieat the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He integrates data-based modeling, chemistry, and a policy-focus to evaluate sustainable energy and chemical technologies and systems. His work informs scientific research, engineering, and public policy focused on improving our environmental sustainability, with an emphasis on mitigating climate change.
At MIT, Micah evaluates established and emerging energy technologies, particularly energy storage. He examines how energy storage technologies have changed over time to determine how to accelerate their improvement. He also studies how energy storage can be used to integrate intermittent renewable resources.
