Yash Dixit

Research Assistant


I come from India with an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from IIT Madras. At MIT, I am currently working towards my Master’s degree in Technology and Policy. My research and academic interests include the application of systems engineering and optimization methods to solve sustainability problems. Outside of academics, I am an avid reader, a fledgling cook and a soccer fan.


At LAE, I am currently working on modeling and mitigating life-cycle emissions attributed to oil and gas value chains. Specifically, the project entails building a global LCA platform for petroleum-derived fuels, proposing solutions to reduce the emissions and performing techno-economic assessments to create policy recommendations.
