MIME Distinguished Speaker: Nathan Johnson, Ph.D., " From Energy Access to Grid Resiliency: A Story of Anthropology, Engineering, and Business"
Innovation is a process that encompasses and eclipses engineering practice to more comprehensively include skillsets from anthropology, economics, and business. It is challenging, however, within our academic career paths to identify opportunities to apply that process in earnest. This talk will demonstrate opportunities for innovation with global impact by beginning with methods that capture and interpret user insights before diving deeper into four synergistic project areas that each connect user insights with technical research to the delivered product. Nathan Johnson is an Assistant Professor at Arizona State University and the Director of the Laboratory for Energy And Power Solutions (LEAPS).

MIME Faculty Candidate Seminars
Destenie Nock - "Power System Planning in Disparate Systems: Modeling Sustainability and Electricity Access"
This talk will explore various options for power grid expansion in both developed and developing countries. I present two papers that focus on approaches to power system planning that help decision makers reach their energy targets. The first part is focused on evaluating the sustainability of a set of generation portfolios. We take a multi-model approach, first determining the reliability of the system overall, then evaluating different generation portfolios based on seven sustainability criteria. The second part focuses on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and energy access in developing countries. We have developed a utility maximization framework that incorporates stakeholder equity preferences into an electricity planning model. This can be used by decision makers to determine the best method of grid expansion to meet electricity access goals subject to system and budget constraints.
Thus., Jan. 24 | 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. | Rogers Hall, Room 226
Micah Lande, Ph.D. - "Tinkering with the Future of Design Education: Citizen Engineering, Making, and Practical Ingenuity"
Engineering design can transform both the stuff we imagine and makeas well as those who engage in the enterprise of design themselves. How technical and non-technical people learn and advance a people-centered design innovation approach, what catalysts and barriers for their learningsare, and evidence of design learning will be illustrated through an “Ambidextrous Mindsets for Innovation” framework. Ongoing engineering design education research projects will be shared on related topics from studies of the educational pathways of adult and young makers in the making community, empathy and invention through prototyping and building activities, and leveraging the story of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein for STEM literacy. Implications for teaching engineering design and practice will also be presented through a perspective of citizen engineering – that everyone can imagine, design, and make solutions to problems that they care about.
