Bio

M. Granger Morgan served for 38 years as founding head of the Department of Engineering and Public Policy. He is a professor of electrical and computer engineering; co-director of the Center for Climate and Energy Decision Making and co-director of the Electricity Industry Center.

Morgan has a deep understanding of climate change, environmental policy and the uncertainties involved. He can speak to issues related to:

  • global warming — as extreme weather patterns disrupt our daily lives, it is clear that climate change is a challenge for our planet
  • carbon sequestration — an alternative to coal-fired plants spewing their carbon dioxide fumes into the air could be to pump them deep inside the ground for storage
  • public policy — from searching for clean energy to harnessing the electric power grid, new policies are needed to replace outdated regulations
