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
Bradley Camburn - "Disruptive Systems Innovation"
Adaptive and innovative design methods are needed to ensure a sustainable future in the face of emerging complexity. Prototyping is one of the most critical, and often overlooked, aspects of the design process. Prototyping was historically seen as a precursor to manufacturing. This talk will report integrated techniques that add clearer distinctions in types of prototypes beyond the traditional alpha/beta classification. Relationships with cost and value will be highlighted. Additional, new research is reported that expands scientific understanding of prototyping methods and outcome in the integrated innovation process. A key finding is the application of prototypes can be dramatically more effective when executed in earlier phases of design. Insights are reported from controlled laboratory studies as well as in-situ industrial case studies including the development of an orbital class rocket engine. The objective of this work is to empower designers to create novel designs at lower cost.
Tues., Jan. 29| 12:45 to 1:45 p.m. | Rogers Hall, Room 226
Andy Dong - "The elegance and utility of design structures"
Some of the most pivotal scientific discoveries have been about structural forms. Until the double helix structure was discovered, the mechanism by which DNA transmitted biological information was unknown. With the discovery of the structure of the periodic table of the elements, the atomic structure of elements that had not yet even been found could nonetheless be predicted. While the field of engineering is likewise replete with discoveries about the structures of breakthrough designs – then formalized in symbolic representations in equations, diagrams, and domain-specific models – the field was not asking whether there were underlying or recurrent patterns in these designs. The structures of designs and design processes remained locked within the specificities of the problem under consideration even though they could explain other breakthroughs yet to be designed. In my research, I investigate the structures of designs and design processes, and by generating insights into the structures, solve important engineering design problems. In this talk, I present discoveries made by me and my research collaborators about the structures of designs and design processes and the effects those structures have, such as rate of innovation and productivity. I will highlight two concepts that underpin the discovery of these structures – spectral dimensionality reduction and abductive reasoning, the inference that makes discovery possible. I conclude with the implication of this research on mental models for the process of design, with emphasis on the design of complex systems.
Thur., Jan. 31 | 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. | Rogers Hall, Room 226
Jinjuan She - "Human-centered Design for Sustainability and Product Innovation"
This talk will discuss two projects that rely on human-centered design. The first focuses on the early stage of product design regarding sustainability. By using specifically designed features, I demonstrated that design could trigger customers to consider, seek, and value a product’s sustainability, and shift their choices towards more sustainable products. In addition, design techniques based on priming were proposed and tested to be effective in helping designers generate such design features. The second part presents a design practice to fill the gap between customer needs and problem definition in product innovation. It was found that a combination of contextual interview, survey, and journey map could be an effective way to collect and synthesize user research data at the fuzzy front-end. In addition, a visual artifact produced by a team helps to retain a user-centered mindset during cross-functional design brainstorming.
