Assistant Professor, Civil, Environmental and Geodetic Engineering/Public Affairs

Prof. Bielicki researches the interactions between energy and environmental systems and policy, with a focus on understanding how energy systems have evolved and how this evolution can be directed in ways that improve environmental, economic, and social conditions. His present research focuses on the energy-water nexus, producing geothermal energy with carbon dioxide, risks of emerging subsurface technologies, and bioenergy pathways.

Prof. Bielicki is Assistant Professor of Energy Policy, with a joint appointment in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Geodetic Engineering and in the John Glenn School of Public Affairs at Ohio State University. Prior to joining Ohio State University, he was a Research Associate at the University of Minnesota, a Weinberg Fellow at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a Fellow for Energy and Environment at the University of Tennessee's Baker Center for Public Policy, and a Research Fellow with the Energy Technology Innovation Policy group at Harvard University.

Prof. Bielicki has participated in a number of national and international workshops and reports on energy and the environment and published in a number of journals including Environmental Science & Technology, Energy Policy, Environmental Management, and International Regional Science Review.
