Anthony Nahas

Tony is directing the EcoBlock project, an urban sustainability experiment in Oakland, CA. The project brings together a multi-disciplinary team of urban designers, engineers, social scientists, and policy experts from UC Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley National Labs, NASA Ames Research Center and Stanford University, as well as local grassroots organizations, non-profits, local utilities PG&E & EBMUD, the City of Oakland and the State of California. The EcoBlock will demonstrate integrated solutions that dramatically reduce home and neighborhood GHG emissions, dramatically cut water consumption, recycle wastewater, enable organic urban food systems, and promote investment in jobs, renewables and green infrastructure. Tony received his undergraduate education at Columbia University and Paris-IV Sorbonne in History and Anthropology. He pursued graduate work in medieval Middle Eastern history at the Sorbonne, the American University of Cairo and Columbia, researching the economic history and administration of the irrigation systems in the agricultural lands between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers during the late Sassanid (5th-7th CE) and Abbasid (8th-11th CE) empires. Tony holds an MBA from the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business and worked in corporate finance in the City of London for JP Morgan, Barclays and ING Barings before transferring to Bryan Garnier in Paris. Thereafter, he established his own Investment Fund specializing in alternative assets. In 2013, he transitioned from Finance to Sustainability with a particular interest in the convergence of economics and the environment. He was a Research Affiliate at the Presidio Graduate School during the 2014 academic year.
