Registration required.

Jorge Izar, Postdoctoral Research Associate, Carnegie Mellon University, gives a talk, "The Double Dividend of Irrigation and Electricity in East Africa," as part of the online New Energy series. 

Dr. Tenorio is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Carnegie Mellon University. His research focuses on understanding the dynamics of interdependent water-energy-food (WEF) systems under a changing climate and their implications on social, economic, and environmental outcomes, primarily in the Global South. One of his current projects aims to evaluate the impacts of projected future climate change scenarios on irrigation and energy for irrigation demands in East Africa. He holds a Ph.D. in Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University (2021), a master's in Sustainable Energy Technology from Delft University of Technology (2012), and a bachelor's in Chemical Engineering from Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí (2008).
