Christophe Combemale

Assistant Research Professor, Engineering and Public Policy / Principal Partner
Carnegie Mellon University / Valdos Consulting
Christophe Combemale is an associate research professor in the Department of Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University. His work focuses on the implications of technology choices and process design for skill demand, and on workforce supply chain levers to meet industry skill demand needs. He is interested in how regional and national labor supply may constrain economic productivity and innovation, and solutions that enhance outcomes for workers and firms. Combemale co-leads the Workforce Supply Chains Initiative at the Block Center for Technology and Society. Working closely with the ARM Institute, and with support from the RK Mellon Foundation, this initiative has developed a novel methodology and user tool to rapidly quantify the gaps between the skill supply that may be available in a region and the skills needed to meet industry demand. Combemale is also the CEO of Valdos Consulting, a firm specializing in techno-economic modeling to support market, technology, and workforce strategy. Combemale and team currently apply these domains on behalf of federal, academic and private clients in health and human services, technology services as well as advanced manufacturing including semiconductors, robotics, electric vehicles, and defense industrial applications.
