Kaleb received a B.S. in CEE from the University of Washington and an M.S. Eng. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Michigan. After graduating with his undergraduate degree, he worked for more than two years at the Washington state-based consulting engineering firm Gray & Osborne developing water and wastewater system plans and design projects and providing construction management services. At Michigan, he performed research focused on developing risk analysis methods for water distribution infrastructure and completed a broad program of study in energy infrastructure and markets. Kaleb’s research now focuses on the optimal design of electrical markets for sustainable goals such as building resilience to disruptions and decarbonizing the electrical grid. Apart from working on research and coursework, he enjoys running with Ithaca’s FLRC, reading widely, cooking wholesome meals, and volunteering at the Ithaca Science Center.
