This talk will present my work at Lawrence Berkeley Lab as an Advanced Light Source beamline postbac. This will mean explaining the synchrotron facility, X-ray scattering, and the impact this research can have upon the commercial and consumer oriented sides of life.
Polite Stewart met his first particle accelerator at Fermi Lab in Illinois, where he worked a summer job on a muon detector. Last summer, he interned as a researcher at North Carolina State University on a project to develop non-glare smart window glass.
Mr. Stewart received his BS in Physics from Southern University and Agricultural and Mechanical College at Baton Rouge at the age of 18. He is currently a Postbaccalaureate Fellow in Experimental Systems at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory where he works at the Advanced Light Source (ALS).
“Building and Unbuilding a Climate Change Crisis”
with Cyane Dandridge of Strategic Energy Initiatives
November 28, 2012
Cyane Dandridge is the executive director and founder of Strategic Energy Innovations (SEI). Cyane has experience establishing new business concepts and in combining a technical and a policy-oriented approach to clean energy, green buildings and energy efficiency.
She received her master's degree in building technology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for her work in international energy policies and technologies. She also holds a BA in Physics from Reed College.
Cyane's work is published in books, journals and conference proceedings. At SEI, Cyane helps to enable communities to embrace clean energy and energy efficiency, green buildings, economic development, and sustainable communities. She believes sustainability will only work when communities consider the environment, economics, and equity. Her primary focus is on underserved market sectors such as local jurisdictions, schools, small businesses, and multifamily and affordable housing. She is also the executive director for the School of Environmental leadership, and helped to design and launch the first one, the Marin School of Environmental Leadership in partnership with Terra Linda High School.
