Professor Jeffrey M. Bielicki is an Assistant Professor at The Ohio State University where he holds a joint appointment in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Geodetic Engineering and in the John Glenn School of Public Affairs at The Ohio State University, and he is also on the faculty of the Environmental Science Graduate Program.
His research group investigates issues in which energy and environmental systems and policy interact, with a focus on understanding how energy systems have evolved and how this evolution can be directed in ways that will improve environmental, economic, and social conditions. Prof. Bielicki’s research group investigates important questions at the intersection of traditional disciplines to glean insights that may not reveal themselves if the disciplines involved were viewed in isolation.
Prof. Bielicki’s research group is currently working on issues associated with using carbon dioxide to produce and store energy with geothermal resources, the risks of emerging subsurface technologies such as carbon dioxide sequestration and hydraulic fracturing, pathways for bioenergy development, and the causes and consequences of energy system transitions. Funding for Prof. Bielicki’s research has come from the U.S. National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy, as well as other external and institutional funding mechanisms.
