Aven Satre-Meloy

2016 Research Fellow

Aven Satre-Meloy is a PhD candidate at the University of Oxford’s Environmental Change Institute. Aven's research aims to improve our understanding of energy consumption in US and UK households, focusing on how deeper insight into complex human-energy dynamics can inform energy policy and strategy for accelerating the low-carbon transition. Aven worked with a team at Oxford to reduce the university’s carbon footprint through innovative energy efficiency projects.

During his PhD, Aven served as a research assistant at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, where he supported analysis for the U.S. Department of Energy's Grid-interactive Efficient Buildings (GEB) initiative. Prior to graduate school, Aven received a Fulbright Scholarship to teach English in Turkey, worked for Mosaic, a clean energy start-up in the California Bay Area, and interned at the White House Office of Energy and Climate Change.

Aven is attending Oxford on a Rhodes Scholarship. He received a BS in Political Science and Environmental Studies from Santa Clara University.
