Research Interests

Professor Marks’ research focuses on sustainable development, environmental engineering, industrial ecology, and water resource systems. Through his work as director of the Laboratory for Energy and the Environment, he tries to foster collaboration among industry, government, academia, nongovernmental organizations, and the public to address the complex interrelationships between energy and the environment, and the technological, economic, and social aspects of sustainable energy development and use.
