Kira O’Hare is a Fellow based in the DC office working under the International Partnerships Program. She is currently supporting the TRUE initiative in analyzing remote sensing data from heavy and light duty vehicles to steer policies that effectively address vehicle emission levels observed in real-world conditions. Her work includes assessing the impacts of life-cycle GHG emissions from battery-electric and combustion vehicles, quantifying the community-level health impacts of transportation emissions, and developing methodologies to identify high-emitting vehicle groups. Kira holds a B.S. in Industrial and Systems Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Prior to joining the ICCT, Kira worked as an undergraduate research assistant at Georgia Tech’s Data Science and Policy lab on a project related to housing and energy policy and interned at the National Renewable Energy Lab and CSIS where she supported work on energy storage and international energy transitions through an environmental justice lens.
