Taylor’s growing expertise centres on mitigation cost-benefit assessment, low-emission development pathways, and building useful tools with limited data.

In addition to his modelling role, Taylor provides support to the worldwide community of Long-range Energy Alternatives Planning system (LEAP) users. He also functions as the lead trainer, and especially enjoys working with local experts to provide guidance and technical advice for the construction of national energy models.

Prior to joining SEI, he studied strategies for optimal wind farm deployment using resource assessment methods. He has an M.Sc. in geography (focused on environmental studies) from the University of Toronto, and an M.Sc. and B.Sc. in theoretical physics from the University of Guelph.
