JISEA Visiting Scholars, Fellows, and Visiting Professionals

JISEA provides opportunities for graduates, scholars, and research professionals, including Presidential Management Fellows, fellows of scientific societies, and those on sabbatical, to participate with JISEA research teams on projects in support of JISEA goals. Research teams are multidisciplinary, and include world-class researchers from among our founding partner institutions: the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the University of Colorado-Boulder, the Colorado School of Mines, the Colorado State University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Stanford University.

Activities include leadership and collaboration roles in analytical research and thought leadership that will provide comprehensive insights to guide a global energy transformation. JISEA provides a vibrant and engaging atmosphere in which to conduct cutting edge research that will change our energy future.

Terms are for up to one year, may begin at any time during the year, and may be located at one of the founding partner institutions, depending on the particular project.

Our Visiting Scholars

Carey King, Ph.D.

August 2017 — Dr. Carey King, Assistant Director of the Energy Institute at the University of Texas at Austin, worked with researchers at JISEA and NREL on developing mathematical models of the macroeconomy and its use of natural resources, including energy resources.

Leila Dagher

June 2013 — In summer 2013, Leila Dagher returned to JISEA to continue work analyzing the elasticity of green power, work begun during previous stints with NREL. This work helps utilities, policymakers, and energy analysts better understand the determinants of green power demand and consumer sensitivity to a change in premium. Dagher has co-authored various publications, including "The causal relationship between energy consumption and economic growth in Lebanon," published in Energy Policy, and "The impact of global oil price shocks on the Lebanese stock market," published in Energy.

Dr. Eric Martinot

March 2013 — Dr. Eric Martinot, an internationally recognized scholar and author of the just-released REN21 Renewables Global Futures Report, led a well-attended, public discussion on the REN21 report during his visit.

Martinot was lead author until 2010 of the REN21 Renewables Global Status Report, an annual synthesis that he first created in 2005. He currently serves as senior research director with the Institute for Sustainable Energy Policies in Tokyo and teaching fellow with Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. He also maintains research affiliations with the Worldwatch Institute and the Chinese Renewable Energy Industries Association.

Rimvydas (Rim) Baltaduonis, Ph.D.

March 2013 — Rimvydas (Rim) Baltaduonis, assistant professor in Economics at Gettysburg College, specializes in energy economics, industrial organization, experimental economics, and market design.

His current research is focused on deregulated electricity markets and the performance of auction mechanisms in wholesale power markets.

During his visit at the University of Colorado, Rim analyzed experimental data on consumer behavior under alternative retail electricity pricing contracts, as well as the efficiency and resilience of these simulated retail electricity markets.
