“As a scientist who for three decades has dedicated my research efforts to advancing technologies in clean energy and sustainability, I couldn’t be prouder to lead the flagship University in a state where, for more than a century, innovators and scholars have made great strides toward a greener future — many of them here at the University of Connecticut.
I came to UConn in 2010 to lead scientific breakthroughs to develop, demonstrate, and deploy new green technologies as part of a push to propel Connecticut onto the international stage in sustainable energy. Since then, I’ve been proud to witness and be part of major breakthroughs in these efforts, from the opening of the Innovation Partnership Building and establishment of the Eversource Energy Center to the recent selection of UConn as the home of the U.S. Department of Energy’s national Onsite Energy Technical Analysis and Support Center.”
