Jason Quinn

Colorado State University, USA

Jason Quinn is a professor in the Mechanical Engineering at Colorado State University and the operating director of the Energy Institute. His education and research have always been centered on energy, with current work focused on system evaluation of electric transportation, microalgae biofuels, agricultural systems, and fission power systems. Research efforts are dedicated to the development of engineering system models validated through experimentation and leveraged for techno-economic feasibility, life cycle assessment, and resource demand of emerging technologies.  Results from modeling work are used to focus research and development efforts to high impact areas.  Jason completed a master’s degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in nuclear engineering and engineering physics, and a PhD at Colorado State University. In the summer you can find him on the western rivers and in the winter chasing snow in the mountains.
