Darren Hammell, Class of 2001, is co-founder and president of Princeton Power Systems, a designer and manufacturer of microgrid and battery solutions. He founded the company as an undergraduate at Princeton’s School of Engineering and Applied Science and the company is now a global leader with thousands of deployments across North America, Europe, Africa, and the Caribbean. Hammell has returned for a fellowship during which he is providing support to start-up companies that have been founded at the Andlinger Center. He led discussions and served as a panelist at the 2018 Annual E-ffiliates Retreat and lectured on his experience commercializing energy technology during the Andlinger Center’s executive education module for Young Global Leaders in July 2018. He also leads the development of a a new course on commercializing energy technologies at the Andlinger Center.
Christopher Greig, is a chemical engineer who earned his doctoral degree from the University of Queensland (UQ), and is a fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering. Greig leads both the Energy Initiative and the Dow Centre for Sustainable Engineering Innovation at UQ and was selected as a Gerhard R. Andlinger Visiting Fellow beginning in July 2018 for two years. Greig will use his fellowship at the Andlinger Center to nucleate a multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional, cross-sector collaboration to identify hotspots and bottlenecks that impede deep decarbonization of the global economy. The core of Greig’s role at the center is to develop this major international research collaboration, known as Rapid Switch, which the Andlinger Center and UQ’s Dow Centre will lead. His main interests lie in energy transitions, economics and policy, energy for development, mega-project implementation, and carbon capture and sequestration.
Judith Greenwald, Class of 1982, is a former U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) executive with more than 30 years of policy experience working in government and the nonprofit sector.
