Research

Jeremy directs the Vehicle Electrification Group, which studies technology, life cycle, consumer behavior, and public policy for electric and advanced vehicle technologies. He also directs the Design Decision Laboratory, which studies the preferences and economics that drive design tradeoff decisions as well as the impact of those decisions on public and private stakeholders. He is a member of the Green Design Institute and the Center for Climate and Energy Decision Making.

Jeremy has presented policy briefs on Capitol Hill and in California’s state government, and his work has appeared in media outlets such as the New York Times and the Washington Post. For more information, including videos and podcasts, visit: http://www.cmu.edu/me/ddl/jmichalek/
