Ross is a Ph.D. candidate in the MIT Engineering Systems Division. His research concerns infrastructure system design for sustainable development. Current work uses System Dynamics to model interdependent water and energy infrastructures in Saudi Arabia, in an attempt to uncover strategies that are robust (along economic and environmental dimensions) to future uncertainties. This work is part of a larger collaboration housed under MIT's Center for Complex Engineering Systems (CCES). He has worked in the past for IHS CERA, an energy consulting firm, and former Congressman Edward Markey on the Natural Resources Committee in the US House of Representatives. Ross holds an S.M. in Technology & Policy from MIT, an M.S. and B.S. in Systems Engineering from the University of Virginia (UVa), as well as a B.A. in Economics from UVa.
