Her main focus is on the decarbonization of the transportation sector by exploring and identifying clean transportation solutions for aviation, marine, and surface transportation.

Hawai‘i‘s clean energy future is important to me because we all need to move away from fossil fuels. The natural ecosystems on which our (and other) species rely upon will with high certainty collapse if we do not. Thus, a clean energy future should be important to all of us. Hawai‘i may be small and emit only a fraction of the global CO2 emissions, but it is in a very unique position. The people of Hawai‘i and its leaders understand the threat of climate change and are aware of how Hawai‘i will suffer if we remain dependent on imported fossil fuels. Hawai‘i, due to being relatively wealthy, has been able to start exploring local alternative sources of energy since the 70’s when fossil fuel prices became unstable. The political will matched with the financial means and intensive research is something most other countries and island nations lack. Hawai‘i may be small, but it has the potential to be in the forefront of this movement and could help catalyze the global decarbonization of the energy sector.
