Biography

Joshua Loughman is a systems engineer, designer, and technology scholar at Arizona State University. He directs the Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) program and lectures on modeling and simulation, design engineering, project management, sustainability, and technology and society. The EPICS program provides opportunities for students to engage with challenging community projects in areas such as sustainability, education, and health.

His scholarship includes understanding how complex decision making about uncertain futures can be done with greater care using models, simulation, scenario analysis, and foresight methods. He studies a wide range of domains from energy systems, environmental policy, economic development, education, ethics, and technology.
