About Me

Dr. Ciez is an Assistant Professor in Mechanical Engineering and Environmental and Ecological Engineering at Purdue University

She received her Ph.D. in Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon and has a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Columbia University. She also spent time as a postdoc at Princeton's Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment and Columbia's Electrochemical Energy Center.

Research Interests

My research focuses on the intersection of performance, technology adoption, and public policy for energy technologies. Much of my work examines electrochemical energy storage, and the role that it can play in decarbonizing electricity, transportation, and manufacturing.

I recruit students through both Mechanical Engineering and Environmental and Ecological Engineering. Interested undergraduate students should email me with a copy of their resume, a brief list of related classes, and their research interests. Prospective graduate students should email me with a copy their CV and a brief statement of their research interests, and how their interests connect to my research areas.

I am also recruiting a postdoc through the Gilbreth Fellowship Program. The project, co-advised with Brian Tackett, combines experimental research in electrocatalytic alternatives to ethane cracking with techno-economic and life cycle modeling
