Bio
David Segan is committed to helping communities achieve their decarbonization goals quickly and equitably. He graduated from George Washington University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts in economics and minor in sustainability. After university, David moved to Medellin, Colombia where he created data visualizations for a telecommunication infrastructure company. An avid user of Medellin’s public transit and biking systems, he was inspired by urban planning initiatives that increased access to public spaces and cheap transportation to improve safety and equality. David then transitioned to energy efficiency implementation as a data analyst on VEIC’s engineering team. He helped commercial and low-income building owners in Washington, DC reduce their energy bills by identifying conservation measures, estimating savings, and offering monetary incentives. His focus was on the utilization of electricity data and he presented his work at two industry conferences. At the Bren School, David is building on this work by specializing in Energy and Climate with an Environmental Data Science focus. His goal is to bring together urban planners, businesses and energy professionals to take full advantage of the opportunities decarbonization provides.
