Stefan SchwietzkeInternational Scientist
I combine my analytical skills, diverse professional background, and collaborative spirit to help understand and solve complex environmental issues. My current research focuses on methane emissions from different sources at different scales: from local to global, which requires the application of different analytical methods in terms of measurement platforms and data analysis. I have previously worked on life cycle analyses related to biofuels and agriculture. I was previously a Research Scientist at the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration's Global Monitoring Division and the University of Colorado's Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences in Boulder, CO. In addition to academic positions, I have worked in large corporations and business consulting. I hold B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Technology Management, respectively, from the University of Stuttgart, Germany, and a Ph.D. in Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University.
