Guiding Northwest California Towards Alternative Transportation Fuels: A Roadmap to 2020 and Beyond

Dr. Kevin Fingerman is an Assistant Professor of Environmental Science and Management at Humboldt State University. His research employs life cycle assessment and simulation modeling tools to evaluate the broad-based impacts of transportation energy systems. He has also worked extensively on the water/energy nexus and bioenergy sustainability governance. Keven serves on the board of the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials, and before coming to HSU he worked in Rome for the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. He holds MS and PhD degrees from UC Berkeley's Energy & Resources Group. Jerome Carman is a recent graduate of the Environmental Systems master’s program at Humboldt State University (HSU), where he focused on energy systems engineering with an emphasis on thermodynamic analysis while obtaining his Engineer In Training certificate. Jerome has a diverse background: complimented by a bachelor’s degree in physics, he has published work in both high energy particle physics and atmospheric physics. During his graduate career at HSU he changed his professional focus toward local government planning and policy which resulted in an energy specialist position at the Redwood Coast Energy Authority (RCEA). While at RCEA, Jerome specialized in greenhouse gas emissions inventories, climate action planning, and low carbon transportation fuel planning an implementation. Jerome is now a research engineer with the Schatz Energy and Research Center where he manages and assists with a variety of transportation planning and implementation projects that are working to accelerate the adoption of low carbon fuels in Northern California.
