June Lukyu is an incoming Assistant Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Washington. She is completing her Ph.D. at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the Systems Towards Infrastructure Monitoring and Analytics (STIMA) Lab. Her research focuses on designing and evaluating technology-driven strategies that enable socio-economic development in underserved regions through stimulating affordable, reliable, and climate-aware electricity use while considering the opportunities and challenges of electricity systems. Her work leverages large-scale ground collected and remotely sensed datasets; and employs a wide range of data analytics, computing techniques, energy system modelling, and social science methods to build models for integrated energy development, electrification planning, and energy systems planning.
June is a researcher of the EEG project Electricity demand forecasting in agriculture - harvesting the synergies of machine learning and survey data for electrification planning in Ethiopia.
