Haewon C. McJeon is a staff scientist at the Joint Global Change Research Institute, a collaboration between the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the University of Maryland. His research focuses on developing methods for decision-making under uncertainties surrounding climate change. Dr. McJeon’s recent work has examined large-scale technology combinations and their impact on the cost of climate stabilization, the climate implications of globally abundant natural gas, and long-run energy-emission scenarios for the next three centuries. He holds a Ph.D. in environmental policy from the Maryland School of Public Policy and a B.A. in economics from Seoul National University. Formerly a competitive snowboarder, he now devotes his free time to rock climbing.
