Inês Azevedo is an associate professor in the department of Energy Resources Engineering in the School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Science and a Senior Fellow both at the Woods Institute for the Environment and the Precourt Institute for Energy at Stanford University. She is passionate about solving problems that include environmental, technical, economic, and policy issues, where traditional engineering approaches play an important role but cannot provide a complete answer. In particular, she is interested in assessing how energy systems are likely to evolve, which requires comprehensive knowledge of the technologies that can address future energy needs and the decision-making process followed by various agents in the economy. In 2017, she was honored with the C3E Women in Clean Energy, Research Award. Azevedo received her M.Sc. in Innovation and Management of Technology from IST Technical University of Lisbon and her Ph.D. in Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University.
