Jack Morris works with Director Christopher Knittel and Dharik Mallapragada to analyze how technological, economic, and regulatory factors impact coal and natural gas stranded asset risk in decarbonization. Jack’s current project adds retrofit modeling to MIT’s capacity expansion model GenX in order to estimate the potential for retrofitted generating assets to lower costs, keep energy workers employed, ensure grid reliability, and enable a smooth energy transition. Jack studied applied mathematics at William & Mary in his home state of Virginia, and he completed an S.M. in MIT’s Technology & Policy Program in 2022.
