Michael T. Chang received his Master of Science from the Technology and Policy Program at MIT. He helped develop a model of the energy consumed by personal vehicle travel using real-world driving data. His Master’s thesis used this model to assess the appropriateness of performance targets for the energy capacity of electric vehicle batteries set by the government and industry groups. His research interests are in applying data-driven methods to understanding the development of emerging technologies and assessing policy. Prior to MIT, he graduated with high honors from the University of California at Berkeley with a Bachelor of Science in Computational Engineering Science and a minor in Mechanical Engineering.
