Theories and tools to understand and assist decision-making in design and product development, electrified vehicles
Carnegie Mellon University 2005-
Jeremy directs the Design Decisions Laboratory, which develops theories and tools to understand and assist decision-making in design and product development. The group is interested in the preferences and economics that drive design tradeoff decisions as well as the impact of those decisions on public and private stakeholders. Research falls into three primary thrust areas:
Jeremy co-directs the Vehicle Electrification Group, which studies electrified vehicles including hybrid electric vehicles, plug-in electric vehicles, and battery electric vehicles. Research thrust areas include:
Jeremy is also a member of the Green Design Institute, with research focus areas in environmental management, energy and the environment, sustainable infrastructure, and life cycle assessment.
