Tom brings a strong background in both engineering and policy to MJB&A. He assists MJB&A clients in the development of regulatory and legislative strategies to address energy and environmental concerns as well as in the identification of pollution control technologies. Recently, Tom has worked with private sector clients to respond to EPA regulatory proposals, assisted a non-profit client in the development of energy policy principles, and provided support to a task force developing consensus recommendations to prepare the energy sector workforce for a low-carbon future. Tom has more than 10 years of experience providing business, governmental, and non-profit clients with strategic assistance on energy and environmental policy issues. In 2007, Tom opened MJB&A’s office in Washington, DC.
Prior to joining MJB&A, Tom worked as a research assistant in MIT’s Carbon Capture & Sequestration Technologies Program (part of the MIT Energy Initiative) exploring public attitudes toward and understanding of climate change and carbon capture and storage. Before attending MIT, Tom worked as an environmental engineer for Eastern Research Group (ERG). At ERG, he supported EPA's Office of Water in the development of effluent regulations.
Tom holds a Master of Science degree from the Technology and Policy Program in the Engineering Systems Division at MIT, and a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering with a double major in Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University, where he graduated with honors.
Tom lives with his wife and two daughters in Arlington, Virginia.
