Energy Research Area: Application of photovoltaics to transportation infrastructure.
The production of renewable energy is the major thrust for the 21st Century. Advances in materials and processes – combined with management practices, legal issues, and environmental concerns and permitting are needed. With the growing number of renewable energy projects worldwide, the development of and the demand for professionals involved in this field is extremely important.
The UW College of Engineering (the Departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering), Educational Outreach, and their industry partners are developing a set of distance learning graduate courses in renewable energy to meet the educational needs of working professionals. As such, education is my major thrust at this time.
