      New NETL Director Brian Anderson on Fueling America’s Energy Generation

      The 2019 Distinguished Lecture Series hosted by Carnegie Mellon University's Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation continues with a talk by the new Director of the National Energy Technology Laboratory, Brian Anderson, who will speak about his role and the future of the U.S. Department of Energy lab. Lunch will be available at 11:45 a.m. Registration is free. Abstract The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratory that develops technological solutions to America’s energy challenges. For more than 100 years, NETL and its predecessor organizations have been recognized for innovation, discovery, development, and deployment of fossil fuel technologies. Today, the NETL mission focuses on discovering, integrating, and maturing technology solutions to enhance the nation’s energy foundation and protect the environment for future generations, and follows a robust vision that will continue to power the nation’s economic progress, ensure its security, and enhance national prosperity. Through forward-looking research and technology development, the laboratory’s team of talented researchers, promising interns, and post-graduate scientists drives fossil energy innovation. This lecture will highlight pioneering, state-of-the-art energy R&D and discuss fossil energy and crosscutting scientific and technological initiatives that bring together multidisciplinary teams to meet some of the Nation’s most important energy challenges. Biography Brian J. Anderson, Ph.D., is director of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). Anderson manages the complete NETL complex, including delivery and execution of the Laboratory’s mission, and national programs in fossil energy. Anderson came to NETL from West Virginia University (WVU) where he served as the director of the WVU Energy Institute. He has a long history of collaboration with NETL and other DOE national laboratories. He served NETL as the coordinator of the International Methane Hydrate Reservoir Simulator Code Comparison study. In 2011, he was awarded a Secretary Honor Achievement Award from the Secretary of the Department of Energy for his role on the Flow Rate Technical Group, a team spanning multiple national laboratories that worked in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.  Anderson is also a recipient of the 2012 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on science and engineering professionals in the initial stages of their careers. He served as a member of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) Roundtable on Unconventional Hydrocarbon Development. He earned his bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering in 2000 at WVU and his master’s and doctorate in chemical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2004 and 2005 respectively. Anderson’s research interests include molecular, reservoir, and multiscale modeling and simulation applied to energy and biomedical systems.
