Gerhard R. Andlinger Visiting Fellows in Energy and the Environment

The Gerhard R. Andlinger Visiting Fellows program is designed to attract distinguished visitors, who will collaborate with Andlinger Center faculty, researchers, and students, and enrich the research and teaching at the Andlinger Center.

Practitioners from industry, government, and not-for-profit sectors will bring different perspectives and urgency to the energy and environmental challenges that are central to the center’s mission. As such, applications from prospective visitors from a variety of backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

 

current visiting fellows

Christopher Greig

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.

Darren Hammell

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.

Richard H. Moss

Richard H. Moss is a senior scientist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Joint Global Change Research Institute at the University of Maryland. He’s also founding director of the Science for Climate Action Network (SCAN), a new collaboration designed to accelerate climate adaptation and mitigation with science and stakeholder engagement. SCAN will assess and improve methods for using the current state of knowledge of climate change and solutions to inform infrastructure design, architecture, standard setting, financing, and other practical aspects of taking climate action at state and municipal levels. While at the Andlinger Center, Moss will focus on coastal adaptation, among other topics. Moss has published widely on climate scenarios, uncertainty characterization, and adaptation. He has held several public service positions including with the United States Global Change Research Program and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. He has served on a number of National Academy activities and chaired a Federal Advisory Committee on the National Climate Assessment. Moss holds a bachelor’s degree from Carleton College, Northfield, MN, and holds a Ph.D. from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University.
