Stanford Energy is brought to you by the Precourt Institute for Energy
Avery is a Lecturer in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering (Atmosphere/Energy Program) at Stanford University. She teaches CEE 107A/207A/EARTHSYS 103 Understanding Energy in the Fall and Spring quarters. She is the course liaison for CEE 107R/207R E^3: Extreme Energy Efficiency, an intensive week-long spring break course at Rocky Mountain Institute’s Innovation Center in Basalt, Colorado in Winter. She also serves as the Explore Energy Program Manager in the Precourt Institute for Energy, aggregating “everything energy” at Stanford (clubs, classes, research, jobs, majors) into a holistic web-based tool for all students interested in energy.
Avery has an MS in Civil and Environmental Engineering (Atmosphere/Energy) from Stanford (2019) and a BS in Environmental Engineering from USC (2017). During her MS at Stanford, Avery served as the Teaching Assistant for CEE 107A/207A/EARTHSYS 103 Understanding Energy, CEE 63/263C Weather and Storms, and CEE 107R/207R E^3: Extreme Energy Efficiency. She was a Schneider Fellow at the Rocky Mountain Institute in summer 2019 in Boulder, Colorado, working on solar + battery storage microgrids for Puerto Rico in the Islands Energy Program. She has also held internships at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (groundwater depletion research with remote sensing data), Ramboll (environmental engineering consulting in their air practice), and the LA County Sanitation Districts (solar feasibility study for their facilities). In her spare time Avery loves to ski, climb, hike, camp, and spend time with friends and family.
