    Research Areas: Energy consumption, Interventions
    Energy Research Focus: Dr. Cuite is currently an Investigator on a NSF-funded INFEWS project designed to identify potential interventions to reduce household FEW consumption, test the interventions in participating households in two case study communities, and collect data for new accounting models of environmental impacts. The project seeks to gain new insights to household consumption behavior and cost-effective interventions to reduce resource use across the FEW nexus. These insights can be applied to increase the well-being of individuals at the household level as well as to improve resource security, reduce climate-related risks, and increase economic competitiveness of the U.S.
