CEI Graduate Fellows

CEI Graduate Fellows

The goal of the CEI Graduate Fellowship Program is to catalyze growth in solar energy, storage, and grid systems research at UW by expanding the pool of seed ideas and talent going into energy research in Washington state. In order to do so, we seek to attract the highest caliber students and postdocs, and to encourage them to apply their talents to tackle the clean energy challenge by providing them the funding and flexibility necessary to explore the most exciting new research directions.

The CEI funds graduate fellows from departments across the UW, including Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering, and Physics. Follow the links below to learn more about the Graduate Fellows and their research.

“Providing clean energy to the inhabitants of our planet is a major challenge to future generations. The University of Washington is to be congratulated for establishing an Institute where faculty and students can work together to tackle the difficult global challenge of energy sustainability.”
– Mildred Dresselhaus, Professor of Physics and Electrical Engineering, Emerita and Institute Professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
“Energy competition is opening up in a variety of ways, the push for carbon control will continue, and the rate of technology advancement is exponential. All the things I’ve seen at the CEI are just perfect for the way we see things going in energy. You guys are at the cutting edge. We’re counting on you.”
– Ronald Litzinger, President, Edison Energy
