Boris Lukanov, PhD, joined PSE in 2017 to develop analyses on energy transition pathways that maximize health, equity, and environmental co-benefits. His work focuses on clean energy technologies, energy equity, air quality, energy efficiency, and integrated resource modeling and optimization. Dr. Lukanov authors peer-review papers and technical policy reports, develops interactive data visualization tools, and serves as an expert on technical advisory committees and in regulatory proceedings. He has more than 10 years of multidisciplinary research experience in both experimental and theoretical science. His PhD research focused on the atomic-scale characterization of surfaces and thin films, with applications in photovoltaics, photoelectrochemistry, and computers. His postdoctoral and undergraduate research focused on theoretical simulations and computational modeling of complex fluid systems.

Dr. Lukanov holds a PhD in Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science from Yale University and a BA in Physics and Astronomy from Wesleyan University.
