From the Director

In this newsletter, I'd like to share with you the latest about exciting GCEP efforts, including:

Please also join me in congratulating:

  • GCEP alumni Kendra Kuhl, Etosha Cave, Dan Riley and Jared Schwede, who landed key roles at a new energy effort at Berkeley Lab.
  • Chris Field, a GCEP research theme leader and investigator, who has been nominated by the U.S. State Department to serve as chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

And finally, a special thanks and best wishes to Rod Nelson, former chairman of Schlumberger Technology Corporation. In this edition, Rod reflects on his work with GCEP over the past seven years.

Many thanks to all of you for your continued interest and support of GCEP.
