My name is Arvind. I study technology, systems, and policy as it relates to energy and the environment. All of my work is built on the premise that climate change is the single biggest existential thread facing humanity. My goal is to help global economies to transition to a clean energy future and reduce emissions from fossil fuel use.

I’m a post-doctoral fellow in the School of Earth, Energy and Environmental Sciences at Stanford University. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at Princeton University. I have undergraduate degrees in both Electrical Engineering and Physics.

I am currently on the academic job market. I look forward to opportunities to discuss my work and perhaps convince you to hire me.
Meanwhile, here’s my CV.
