Rose has been involved in sustainable energy research and consulting for more than twenty years. She specializes in developing and applying quantitative models to evaluate government policies for reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Her work has also explored themes such as the risks of geological carbon storage and the cost of forest carbon sequestration. More recently, her focus has been on combining advancements in energy-economy modelling at the national/regional scale with the spatial elements necessary to understand energy use within the built environment of cities.
Rose earned her Master’s and doctorate degrees in Resource and Environmental Management at Simon Fraser University. She has received numerous awards for her research and has published peer reviewed articles in Energy Policy, The Energy Journal, Energy Economics, and Ecological Economics, among others. She has served as a supervisor for many graduate students in the School of Resource and Environmental Management at SFU, where she has also taught courses in energy systems modeling and sustainable energy policy. Rose enjoys spending time with her husband and two children and going on casual runs with friends.
