Carey King, Research Associate, Jackson School of Geosciences
Dr. Carey King studies energy systems, how they work together, how they impact the environment, and how and why humans as a society consume energy resources. He specializes in dynamic systems modeling and nonlinear optimization methods. Much of his recent work has focused on the nexus between energy and water for projecting water demand for electricity generation and alternative automobile fuels. As part of his energy-water studies, Dr. King has authored journal publications, a chapter for the Texas State Energy Conservation Office on the role of water in Texas' energy future as well as a report for the Texas Water Development Board that projects water demand scenarios for future electricity production. Additional work in which Dr. King is engaged includes the economics of carbon capture and sequestration, the design of beneficial combinations of renewable energy and storage systems, and the creation of tools to help the public and policymakers understand the trade-offs among different electricity generation sources.
