Daniel Zachary

Program Director and Senior Lecturer, Energy Policy and Climate Program
Krieger School of Arts and Sciences Advanced Academic Programs

d.s.zachary@jhu.eduFaculty Website

Research Areas:
  • Integrated assessment (IA) modeling – energy infrastructure and air quality models: building coupled (meta-models) and using them to better understand the built environment, including: projecting urban/regional energy infrastructure growth and subsequent air pollution and human impact to inform policy support measures. 
  • Smart grid applications in terms of long-term policy analysis. 
  • Statistical techniques to expand urban IA models to study regional and global energy systems with their subsequent pollution impact.
Keywords: Air pollution, Energy infrastructure, Smart grid, Urban sustainability

Climate change has happened because of human behavior, therefore it’s only natural it should be us, human beings, to address this issue. It may not be too late if we take decisive actions today.
