Moderator: Enrica De Cian, CMCC@Ca’ Foscari, RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment (EIEE) and Venice Ca’ Foscari University

Speaker’s short bio:

Jennifer Dunn studies emerging technologies, their energy and environmental impacts, and their potential to influence air pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions, water consumption, and energy consumption at the economy-wide level. Particular technologies of interest include biofuels and bioproducts, automotive lithium-ion batteries, fuels and chemicals made from carbon capture and utilization technologies and from natural gas liquids, and resource recovery from wastewater. She applies life cycle analysis as a key tool to evaluate emerging technologies. Dr. Dunn holds a PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Michigan. Her undergraduate institution in the same field was Purdue University.  Jennifer holds a joint appointment in the Energy Systems Division of Argonne National Laboratory and is Associate Director of Northwestern’s Center for Engineering Sustainability and Resilience.
