Brown bag seminars

We have held brown bag seminars, a series of informal talks for the trainees where guest speakers from campus and the community present their research as it relates to clean energy science and policy. The speakers this year have included: Prof. Matt Kahn (Institute of the Environment and Sustainability) who discussed climate change adaptation and themes from his third and latest book Climatopolis; Michael Swords (Executive Director of UCLA Strategic Research & Global Partnerships) who discussed Clean Tech LA and partnership with the Los Angeles Mayor's Office; Prof. Deepak Rajagopal (IOES) who discussed life cycle assessment (LCA) methodologies for biofuels and energy policy; Earl Weinstein (UCLA Office of Intellectual Property) and Dr. Shahin Farshchi (Lux Capital Management) who discussed patenting strategies and intellectual property.
