    As a Masters (’07) and Doctoral (’10) student at UC Berkeley, Daniel Work created a firm foundation on scholarship and innovation, a network of top scholars and researchers and a spirit of forging ahead with large-scale projects. Now he’s transforming the way we think about how autonomous vehicles and emerging technology can revolutionize traffic control.

     Responding to the global impacts of human activity, UC Berkeley and the Berkeley Lab have long been leaders in the research needed to understand and respond effectively to humanity's global environmental impact. And that research was on display May 12, 2017 at the Cal Future Forum, showcasing developing energy efficiency standards that are now used around the world, developing technologies for making our cities more resilient to droughts and floods, converting sunlight into modern fuels, assessing the impact of the sixth mass extinction, to forecasting future change.

    Mention infrastructure and what comes to mind are the physical components that hold a society together, the roads, bridges and dams, power lines, railroad tracks, cell-phone towers and all the rest. But soon the word will mean something much bigger and much smaller: a resilient infrastructure that can manage the energy, water, transportation and other human needs on scales from individual homes to whole cities and entire states.
