The Energy Club at Georgia Tech is dedicated to bringing together different viewpoints on energy as well as the social, economic and political factors that comprise the issue. We are a diverse group made up of technical and non-technical members from different fields of study spanning from first year undergraduates to fifth year doctoral students.
Luke is an undergraduate student is a second year student in Materials Science and Engineering. He is interested in researching materials for energy storage and in the future wants to research and develop technologies for sustainable grid infrastructure.
Reanna Rafiq is an undergrad chemical engineering major planning to graduate in ’24 with an energy systems minor. Outside of school, she enjoys playing piano and singing karaoke (badly). She hopes that her career can contribute to an increase in accessibility to clean energy for all!
Arnold is an MS analytics student, with an undergrad in electrical engineering, and primary work experience in the power industry, at an electric utility. He is curious about how systems and mechanisms work, broadly, and is seeking to apply data science to sustainability. His major interests revolve around climate change, energy, sustainability, key human rights, social conflict & refugees, systemic risks, process design. He also proclaims to enjoy hiking and dancing to an energetic beat.
Zachary is a second year Mechanical Engineering undergrad with a minor in energy systems. He is interested in developing more sustainable energy storage and capture technologies in the future.
Wolfgang is a 3rd Year Undergraduate studying Materials Science and Engineering, with a concentration in Structural and Functional Materials. He would like to help develop sustainable-energy technology in the future.
Teams and Committees
Daniel Molzahn joined the faculty of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech in Spring 2019. Prior to this position, Dr. Molzahn was a computational engineer at Argonne National Laboratory in the Center for Energy, Environmental, and Economic Systems Analysis (CEEESA), where he currently holds an affiliate position. He was a Dow Postdoctoral Fellow in Sustainability in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at the University of Michigan. He received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering and the Master’s of Public Affairs degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he was a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow. In his spare time, Dr. Molzahn enjoys hiking, waterskiing, and climbing. Also, as a shareholder of the world’s greatest sporting franchise, he keeps an eye on his investment by watching and attending football games of the 13-time-champion Green Bay Packers football team.
