Securing America's Future Energy

Jesse Dunietz

Technology, Energy and Society Fellow

Dr. Jesse Dunietz is the inaugural Fellow for Technology, Energy, and Society at SAFE. Jesse is based in Pittsburgh and Boston and will be working as a communicator-in-residence to educate the public about the underlying science and technologies in AVs by publishing articles on this topic.

Jesse recently completed his Ph.D. in computer science at Carnegie Mellon University, where he worked on teaching computers to understand what we humans mean when we talk about cause and effect. He loves to make his computer science knowledge useful to everyone from classrooms to physicists. In that vein, Jesse co-founded Public Communication for Researchers, a CMU program that trains graduate students in science communication, and spent the summer of 2017 as a AAAS Mass Media Fellow at Scientific American. Later this year, he will join the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Communication Lab and focus on improving the communication skills of scientists.
