Dr. Robert “Bobby” Jeffers has helped to build a growing body of energy resilience research at Sandia since 2013. Bobby applies techniques such as system dynamics, power systems modeling, interactive visualization, agent-based modeling, and spatial network modeling to diverse problems concerning the intersection between human, natural, and engineered systems – particularly energy systems. He currently works directly with the Grid Modernization, Renewable Energy Technologies and the Complex Systems for National Security groups, interacting with multiple customers within DOE-OE, DOE-EERE, and DoD energy offices. He has also strategically crafted several successful proposals in the energy resilience space. Bobby’s passion for improving real-world sustainability and resilience has been demonstrated by his ability to form large teams working collaboratively with external partners and stakeholders such as city governments, electric utilities, non-profit organizations, and national laboratories. Bobby began his career as a research scientist at Idaho National Laboratory, where he served as Principal Investigator on three diverse projects simulating the energy-water nexus, critical material supply chain economics, and novel concepts for integration of renewable energy on the power grid.
