Capabilities & Research Areas
The Society, Energy, and Environment Group applies expertise in (a) assessing the ability of scientific and technological advances to promote national social, economic, and environmental objectives safely and sustainably; (b) assessing and managing existing or evolving energy, environmental and health impacts of extant technologies; and (c) helping transition science and technological advances toward wider beneficial use. Group expertise includes human health risk assessment, dosimetry and radiation protection, and toxicology (human, animal, and environmental); regulatory analysis; energy and economic modeling and analysis; sustainable technology modeling, assessment, analysis, evaluation, and deployment; environmental analysis; and social, institutional, and behavioral analysis. The Group’s work serves a mix of academic, governmental, and practitioner audiences.
