The successful candidate will work on a number of research projects relevant to city, state, and federal agencies as part of a diverse team of faculty, research scientists, graduate students, and industry partners. The projects are intended to be both impactful and advance the state of scientific understanding, and thus lead to publications in top scholarly journals. Research activities will include spatial analytics of urban resource consumption; machine learning approaches to urban energy optimization and demand forecasting; predictive modeling of building energy retrofit adoption and diffusion; modeling the behavioral, social, and economic dynamics of urban energy consumption and carbon emissions; and developing tenant energy performance models, among others.  Opportunities will be provided for teaching in the CUSP M.S. program and for gaining practical experience working alongside representatives of various New York City agencies. Post-doctoral associates are also encouraged to pursue their own research interests, develop new collaborations, and seek research funding in conjunction with Professor Kontokosta.
