Lindsay Anderson

Agriculture + Life Sciences / Biological + Environmental Engineering (ASSOC-PROF)

Lindsay Anderson is an associate professor in Biological and Environmental Engineering and the Norman R. Scott Sesquicentennial Faculty Fellow in the College of Engineering. She serves as Interim David Croll Director of the Cornell Energy Systems Institute (CESI). At Cornell Atkinson, Anderson serves as Faculty Director and leads the Accelerating Energy Transitions working group.

Anderson is working to integrate renewable energy into existing energy markets, with a particular interest in wind energy. She studies rapidly evolving energy technologies, changing policy, and fickle markets and uses tools of systems modeling and optimization in her research. Her overarching goal is to accelerate the transition to a low carbon energy future. She is particularly interested in the effective integration of wind and solar resources, through the leveraging of distributed and demand-side resources. Anderson's approach to this problem is through the improvement of operational strategies to include supply and demand-side resources in frameworks for optimization under uncertainty.
