Please join the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Fellow Arvind Ravikumar, Research Associate Professor, Hildebrand Department of Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering, University of Texas – Austin, presenting a virtual seminar titled Can We Finally Solve the Methane Challenge? on Tuesday, March 1, 2022 from 9:30am – 10:45am (MT).
Reducing methane emissions from oil and gas operations is a critical near-time climate action tool around the world. Recent technological advances and cost reductions have made ubiquitous monitoring, measurement, and mitigation of methane emissions achievable. In this seminar, I will present an overview of the technology and policy advances in global methane emissions mitigation and the significant career opportunities it presents for students.
Dr. Ravikumar received his from Ph.D. from Princeton University developing infrared lasers and sensors to detect trace gases in the atmosphere. He also spent a few lovely years in Northern California when he was a postdoc in the Energy Resources Engineering department at Stanford University. In addition to his position at UT, Dr. Ravikumar is also a non-resident fellow with the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines.
His research and teaching focuses on technical and policy solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the global energy sector. They employ an interdisciplinary approach that integrates field work, modeling, and policy analysis to answer critical questions around our energy future across space and time. Their current geographic focus is on North America with a growing interest in its linkages to global energy trade. They welcome people from a variety of backgrounds including atmospheric scientists, engineers, economists, and public policy experts to push the frontiers of energy and climate policy research.
