Jesse Parent is an analyst, editor, and author focusing on the issues of our time, including energy & resources, technology, global affairs, and sustainability. He believes the "science and engineering needed to develop clean technologies cannot be separated from the ecological study of Earth's integrated human and natural systems or from the social science of human behavior and well-being" (ACSF). With a lifelong interest in how humans develop, learn, and process information, Jesse found one of his greatest strengths is investigation and discovering what is influencing a situation - from interpersonal relations to global energy policy.
Mr. Parent has a talent for the multidisciplinary approach, with a record of international & multicultural collaboration. This is often combined with his penchant for utilizing the latest technology to create leading-edge results.
Jesse currently is Chief Editor at Jesse Parent [INFLUENCE], a Geopolitical Contributor at Learnist, an Analyst & Editor for the Geostratigic Consultancy Wikistrat, and a Featured Blogger at The Energy Collective. He is also a regular contributor as an Energy Policy Expert at OurEnergyPolicy.org. Jesse studied International Relations & Global Political Economy at SUNY Geneseo.
One of Jesse's main aims is to foster deliberate dialogue about important public issues. He believes it is essential to pursue understanding of significant issues so that the best decisions can be made - and encourages the self-empowerment and leadership approach of starting from wherever you are to learn more and make the best decisions possible.
Jesse's other interests include world history, human rights, development, and philosophy & leadership. In his spare time he enjoys being a foodie, a disc-lover, yoga, and training to one day be a Tough Mudder.
