Jennifer has been teaching thermal fluid topics and engineering design as a Lecturer in the Mechanical Engineering department at Northern Arizona University since 2015. Prior to this, she spent two years in a research faculty role continuing earlier work on carbon capture technologies. She spent four years as a research/product development engineer for BASF where she was developing catalytic converter and refining catalyst technologies.
Dr. Nelson’s expertise spans a variety of topics, including energy systems analysis, energy policy, energy transport, bioengineering, and materials science. He completed his PhD performing interdisciplinary research at the intersection of thermal transport, materials science, and nanofabrication, and then completed a postdoctoral fellowship in engineering design education with the National Academy of Engineering CASEE program. He spent 2014-2016 away from NAU on sabbatical, working as a policy fellow at the US Department of Energy in the Building Technologies Office, where he managed multiple international research programs and provided strategic analysis to guide R&D strategy. He also has an ongoing collaborative appointment with the Strategic Energy Analysis Center at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
