Dr. Kelly examines the sustainability of energy and transportation systems as a research engineer at Argonne National Laboratory. His recent studies have considered the environmental implications of battery electric vehicle adoption and the supply chain variance associated with the production of lithium-ion batteries in different regions of the world. This work found that there are significant opportunities to reduce various pollutant emissions associated with battery production through locational variation. His work has also characterized breakeven substitution ratios for material substitution in vehicle light weighting efforts. He received his BS in mechanical engineering from the University of Oklahoma and his MS and PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Michigan.
