Joint appointments as Research Scientists at National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Professor Emmanouil Anagnostou and Professor Junbo Zhao have started their new positions as the Research Scientist at National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) under the UConn-NREL partnership. They will be affiliated with the Grid Automation and Controls Group at NREL.

Among the many goals of the partnership, UConn and NREL will work together to invest in the development of joint solutions to clean energy challenges in the Northeast and increase funding opportunities not otherwise available to either individual institution. The program enables pathways for undergraduate and graduate students to work jointly with NREL scientists and UConn faculty.

“Partnering with NREL opens UConn to unlimited possibilities and advancements in clean energy research and innovation,” says Dr. Pamir Alpay, UConn’s interim vice president for research, innovation, and entrepreneurship. “We have worked hard to build our reputation as a leader in the field, creating opportunities for students and our faculty to contribute global solutions to meet energy needs and reduce dependency on carbon. NREL brings resources and collaborations that expand our reach, to the benefit of the energy and workforce infrastructure of UConn and the state.”
