Roger Sathre is a Research Scientist with the Environmental Energy Technologies Division of the Lawrence
Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). His research interests
Roger's educational background includes:
- life-cycle environmental analysis of energy, industrial, and forestry systems
- scenario-based prospective system modeling of emerging energy technologies
- energy and climate implications of forest management and forest product use
- temporally- and spatially-explicit modeling of climate change mitigation strategies.
His professional experience includes over a decade of refugee relief program management in several African countries, where he was responsible for the design, operation, evaluation, and reporting of emergency humanitarian programs.
Roger is also Program Director at the LBNL Institute for Globally Transformative Technologies (LIGTT). This Lab-wide initiative seeks to identify the most critical human development problems that technology can address, leverage LBNL's scientific and engineering expertise to create demand-driven solutions, and develop practical implementation models to enable large-scale change.
He is a member of LBNL's Emerging Technology Assessment (ETA) Team. This interdisciplinary team conducts prospective life-cycle modeling of the energy, environmental and economic effects of large-scale deployment of emerging energy technologies, providing feedback to guide basic research and accelerate innovation.
Roger is also Adjunct Professor in the Department of Building and Energy Technology at Linnaeus University in Växjö, Sweden. He works with the Sustainable Built Environment research group, where he conducts life-cycle system analysis of forestry, bioenergy, and the built environment.
