Jonathan Ogland-Hand

Director of Carbon Removal

Jonathan has researched topics including energy storage, geothermal energy, CO₂ transportation and geologic storage, utilization of geologically stored CO₂, and renewable energy integration. To do this, he has built, used, and integrated tools such as capacity expansion models, economic dispatch models, cost models, coupled plant-level models of wells and power plants, dynamic programs, and reservoir simulation.

Prior to Carbon Solutions, Jonathan was a postdoctoral researcher at ETH Zurich, in Switzerland. When he is not crunching numbers at his desk, Jonathan enjoys reading, running, cooking (and eating!), and cheering for The Ohio State Buckeyes!
