Speaker Bio:

Mark Thurber is Associate Director for Research at the Program on Energy and Sustainable Development at Stanford University's Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies. Dr. Thurber's research interests include how institutional factors affect the diffusion of technologies - both large-scale, infrastructure-intensive ones such as for central electricity generation or carbon capture and storage (CCS) as well as small, highly-distributed ones such as improved cookstoves or generators for the very poor. He also focuses on the strategy and performance relative to competitors of firms that have both connections to government and a broadly commercial character, which include some national oil companies.

Dr. Thurber holds a Ph.D. from Stanford University in Mechanical Engineering (Thermosciences) and a B.S.E. from Princeton University in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering with a certificate from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
