Thayer School's Visionaries-in-Technology Distinguished Speaker Series honors engineers and scientists whose insights have benefited humanity through revolutionary engineering solutions, paradigm shifting scientific advances, novel fields of inquiry, or policy shaping debate.

This talk will provide a snapshot of various trends in the energy industry and offer some thoughts on the role of science, engineering and technology innovations to address these challenges while navigating and shaping the 3Ds: 1) Decarbonization; 2) Diversification; and 3) Digitization.

Reception follows in GlycoFi Atrium. Everyone welcome.

This event is part of the 150th anniversary celebration of Thayer School.
