Jesse received his Bachelors and Masters Degrees from Drexel University in 2010 as part of the BS/MS program. Jesse joined the Center for Electric Power Engineering following his graduation in 2010.

Current research focuses on Renewable Energy Utilization. This includes renewable storage as well as generation such as solar. Renewable storage research aims to create dispatch schedules with one or multiple goals in mind. Some aims include battery cycling as well as load shaping.
