June M. Lukuyu

Researcher| Energy for Climate-Aware Development

June Lukuyu is an incoming Assistant Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Washington. She is completing her Ph.D. at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the Systems Towards Infrastructure Monitoring and Analytics (STIMA) Lab, advised by Dr. Jay Taneja. Her research focuses on designing and evaluating technology-driven strategies that enable socio-economic development in underserved regions through stimulating affordable, reliable, and climate-aware electricity use while considering the opportunities and challenges of electricity systems. Her work leverages large-scale ground collected and remotely sensed datasets; and employs a wide range of data analytics, computing techniques, energy system modeling, and social science methods to build models for integrated energy development, electrification, and energy systems planning.

She holds an MSc. in Renewable Energy Systems Technology from Loughborough University, a B.S in Engineering Science from Smith College, and a MicroMasters credential in Data, Economics, and Development Policy from MITx.
