    Ph.D. Student in Civil and Environmental Engineering, admitted Autumn 2017
    Masters Student in Statistics, admitted Winter 2020

    BioJose Bolorinos is a Ph.D. candidate in Civil and Environmental Engineering (Atmosphere and Energy) and an M.S. student in Statistics. Jose's research focuses on data-driven, systems-level strategies for coordinating urban water and energy supply infrastructure. As part of this work, Jose has investigated policy approaches that better understand and manage the lifecycle impacts of the energy sector on watersheds, air quality, and carbon emissions. Jose has also developed closed-loop customer monitoring and segmentation tools that allow water and electricity utilities to quickly track the responses of their customers to demand shocks inside and outside of their service areas. Currently, Jose is developing data-driven methods to support optimal design and deployment of the next generation of anaerobic, membrane-based wastewater treatment systems.

    Broadly, Jose's research aims to develop open-source, cost-effective data and computation tools for infrastructure planning and management. His work has been featured at the California Data Collaborative, Stanford's Big Earth Water Hackathon, and AI for Climate Change Initiative. In 2018, a visualization tool Jose developed for wastewater treatment plant operators was awarded the Best Software Prize at Stanford's Big Earth Water Hackathon.

    Prior to coming to Stanford, Jose worked as a data scientist for a healthcare consultancy subcontracted by the federal government to manage its Medicare and Medicaid claims databases. Jose received a B.A. in Economics from UC Berkeley and an M.S. in Environmental Engineering and Science from Stanford University. He was part of the start up operations team at the Bill & Cloy Resource Recovery Center, an experimental, pilot-scale wastewater treatment facility launched recently on the Stanford campus to accelerate innovative approaches to wastewater treatment.
