Developing new computational models and climate data analysis tools to make better decisions

About Me 

My passion is to create computational models and data analysis tools that help us make the best decisions for dealing with climate change challenges. Currently, I am a Postdoctoral Associate at the MIT Energy Initiative, developing accurate and efficient computational models of energy storage for capacity expansion modeling. 

I have developed novel methods for time-dependent reliability and risk-based design frameworks accounting for nonstationarity and serial correlation embedded in the stochastic climate-ocean processes. I am passionate about importing state-of-the-art data science methodologies to applications in the energy sector and civil infrastructures. It is always inspiring for me to meet and mentor enthusiastic students for their exciting research projects.

If you have any questions about my work, would like to collaborate, or would like a copy of a journal article behind a paywall, please feel free to email me: taemin at mit.edu.
