Daisy's Bio:

Living in a dry cabin in a city with one of the highest heating requirements and highest costs of energy in the world has made Daisy keenly aware of the need to use technology to increase energy efficiency and to develop local renewable energy sources. Daisy is happy to work on the forefront of renewable energy research in the challenging arctic environment. Daisy earned her PhD in mechanical engineering from UAF in 2013. Before that, she spent seven years designing mechanical components for the semiconductor and power control industries, in the Silicon Valley. She also has broad experience in materials selection and design-for-manufacture criteria. She completed her MS in mechanical engineering at Santa Clara University, and her BS in mechanical engineering at UC Berkeley.

Daisy enjoys skiing, hiking, backpacking, gardening, cooking, eating, reading, and hanging out with her retired sled dogs.

Marc Mueller-Stoffels' Researcher Showcase

Marc Mueller-Stoffels' CV

Marc Mueller-Stoffels is the lead researcher for the Power Systems Integration (PSI) Program at the Alaska Center for Energy and Power (ACEP). Marc's research focuses on the integration of variable generation sources into isolated micro grids. Most recently he has lead the testing of an inverter-battery system to enable diesel-off mode in high contribution wind scenarios. Prior to joining ACEP, Marc has developed regional scale climate models with focus on Arctic sea ice, and has chaired a small software company specializing in optimization algorithms. Marc holds graduate degrees in physics from the University of Alaska Fairbanks and Otago University, New Zealand.

Projects with ACEP:

  • Scenarios Planning and Tracking of Global Energy Markets

George Roe is a research professor with ACEP and the Institute of Northern Engineering at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. His focus areas include energy and energy management, with emphasis on their relation to sustainable community development and capacity building. George has 35 years of experience at Boeing, where he worked in research and development efforts for a range of technologies (e.g., thermal management, vehicle subsystems, crew protection, energy harvesting, energy storage, alternative energy) and their integration with products sold by Boeing and its team mates. He has served in both engineering and management capacities on multiple company, industry and government-funded endeavors. His responsibilities have addressed technology maturation in the areas of energy management systems for aircraft. He holds Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Washington.
