Katherine supports an NWTC initiative for systems engineering methods applied to
wind energy. The project is undergoing initial development and involves integrating
engineering and cost-based analysis tools to analyze overall wind energy system performance.
Katherine's Ph.D. work in systems engineering involves understanding innovation and
diffusion of wind energy technology. She began working in wind energy as a wind program
analyst for Green Energy Ohio in 2005 and as a data analyst for The Renaissance Group.
In addition to wind energy, Katherine has worked as a system dynamics consultant to
IBM's Smarter Cities Marketing Insights 2.0 initiative, a data quality analyst at
EnerNOC for its demand management program, and as a controls engineer for GM's Hybrid
