Darshan Karwat is an assistant professor with a joint appointment in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society and The Polytechnic School at ASU, where he runs re-Engineered, an interdisciplinary group that embeds peace, social justice, and environmental protection in engineering. He is originally from Mumbai, India, but feels equally at home in Michigan or Washington, D.C. (and now, the Valley!). Karwat studied aerospace engineering (specializing in gas dynamics and combustion) and sustainability ethics at the University of Michigan. He then spent three years as a AAAS Fellow in Washington, D.C., first at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on the Innovation Team, where he worked on climate change resilience and low-cost air pollution sensors; and then at the U.S. Department of Energy in the Water Power Technologies Office, helping design and run the Wave Energy Prize.
