Zeyneb is currently focused on transitioning the natural gas distribution system to a utility-scale renewable thermal energy distribution system using the GeoMicroDistrict approach. Her work has led to Eversource Gas proposing to pilot the GeoMicroDistrict in their most recent rate case in MA, ConEd proposing a pilot in NY, and other possible pilots moving forward. Zeyneb previously led HEET's Large Volume Leak Study, establishing a method to rapidly cut emissions from leaking gas pipes in half - now enacted in MA Regulation and in operation in the field. She has worked at BBN Technologies, Harvard University, in multiple start-ups, and her healthy home renovation in 2008 was in a USGBC GreenBuild tour and featured on PBS NOW. She is committed to creating and driving forward just and wise solutions to the urgent challenge of climate change through multidisciplinary problem solving, co-creation, and innovation.
