Ideas:
“  I am currently working on: 1.) Merging physics-based energy building models with utility-maximizing households to model households' response to electricity price changes (using progressive electricity tariffs, TOU pricing, RTP, etc..), essentially embedding a household in a building energy model, 2.) Expanding the approach mentioned by 1.) to investment in energy efficiency, and 3.) Studying the viability of natural gas storage for seasonal use in Saudi Arabia using the KAPSARC Energy Model. Natural gas use in the summers is limited by daily transport capacity, so storing the gas in the winter (or lower power load periods in general) will help bypass this summer limit.  ”
