Prior to his graduate studies, Collin worked in the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Beijing office, where he researched policy approaches for China to reduce its coal use and integrate higher levels of renewable energy. After NRDC, he spent time as a business development associate at an energy storage start-up exploring ways to commercialize new energy management technologies. His studies at SAIS are focused on electricity systems and how tools like energy storage and demand response can improve power sector operations and facilitate a transition to cleaner energy sources.
