Alex Badgett is a part of the Industrial Systems and Fuels group in the Strategic Energy Analysis Center. He uses numerical optimization and techno-economic methods to analyze interfaces and opportunities between industrial systems and sustainable energy pathways. These opportunities include electrochemical pathways to convert carbon dioxide into sustainable fuels or chemicals and the generation of bioenergy and biofuels from organic wet wastes.
