Nicole Taverna is a member of both the Data, Analytics, Tools & Applications (DATA) and Geothermal groups who has worked on a variety of projects, including updating the OpenEI map of wind farms, analyzing the impacts and uses of induced seismicity from enhanced geothermal system (EGS) stimulations, and constructing a geothermal drilling curriculum to be taught concurrently with an existing petroleum drilling curriculum. Her experience lies primarily in geothermal energy, but she has worked on projects pertaining to wind, marine, and hydrokinetic energies as well.
