Jeff Kessler graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with his BS and MS in Chemical Engineering where he focused on renewable energy and environmental catalysis. After graduating from Boulder, he spent some time abroad in England further researching renewable energy. Being dissatisfied with the often apparent disconnect between policy and technology, Jeff returned to Boulder to further his studies in energy policy. He is presently a Doctoral student at UC Davis working as a Low-carbon Fuel Standard Policy Fellow. In his spare time, Jeff enjoys hiking, wordsmithing, and playing guitar; he considers himself to be a self-proclaimed professional folk singer.
