Assistant Professor Nishant Garg was interviewed for the Illinois Public Media program “State of Change” that aired in November 2022. The program examined how Illinoisans are managing carbon, a major contributor to climate change.
Garg talks about a research project he is working on for Meta, the parent company of Facebook, which is interested in reducing the carbon footprint of a data center the company is constructing. Garg’s research team is using AI to explore concrete mix alternatives that result in lower carbon emissions.
