I’m MIT Technology Review’s research editor. I spend my days taking things extremely seriously and attempting with all my nerdy might to piece together bigger pictures from the bits and shreds of truth I manage to filter from the information barrage. I’m particularly obsessed with the energy-related challenges facing humanity and the future of the Internet.
