Bodie’s interests lie at the intersection of health, environment, and energy access. To date, Bodie has primarily focused on modernizing cooking in South Asia and Sub Saharan Africa. This work has taken him from rural villages building mud “chulhas” to high-tech cookstove manufacturing and testing facilities. Presently, he is working to understand the social, economic, and political forces behind the provision and use of cooking gas in India. In 2014, Bodie graduated with a BS in Environmental Science and was honored as the Presidential Scholar for Huxley School of the Environment. He is currently an NSF Graduate Research Fellow pursuing an MS in the Energy and Resources Group.
