Lindsay Anderson is an Associate Professor in Biological and Environmental Engineering, the Norman R. Scott Sesquicentennial Faculty Fellow, and the Kathy Dwyer Marble and Curt Marble Faculty Director for Energy at the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future.
Professor Anderson is enthusiastic about achieving a low-carbon energy future, and her research interests lie broadly in the use of systems approaches to enable high penetration of renewable resources through leveraging demand-side and distributed resources. The Anderson Lab is diverse and energetic, and it addresses many aspects of this vision through a highly interdisciplinary research program that leverages operations and optimization, as well as environmental and systems engineering.
Professor Anderson also holds field memberships (i.e., supervises Ph.D. students) in Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Systems Engineering at Cornell.
Before coming to Cornell, Professor Anderson was an Assistant Professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Western University in Canada. She earned her Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics at Western and a B.S. and M.S. in Environmental Engineering at the University of Guelph (Canada).
