The Energy Issue

As we face the challenges of climate change, the energy choices we make now have never been more crucial. In this issue of USC Dornsife Magazine, we look at energy through the diverse lenses of our scholars’ research — from finding nature-inspired solutions to meet our future energy needs to weighing the pros and cons of nuclear power. We report how ancient technology is shaping advances in cooling technology, we explore natural and esoteric energy, and we delve into the unique demands of our own “body electric.”

You were the high school class of 2020. You faced unprecedented challenges in unprecedented times.
But you made it here, and you made it together. We see you, we’re proud of you ✌️
