I am from Monterey but have moved quite a lot in my life and spent half of it on the East Coast. I have worked at the Humboldt Energy Independence Fund (HEIF) for the past two years on a dorm monitoring project where we researched how to be able to show students how much energy they are consuming as well as the Energy Analysis team where I am documenting and calculating the least efficient buildings on campus.
