It is with real pleasure that I welcome you to the Council of the Environment of the University of Maryland. Our University has tremendous breadth and depth in environmental and earth system science and, as a land grant university, is committed to bringing those resources to support the work of local communities and government, and to promote economic development in the State. Our strengths spread across a wide spectrum of academic fields such as anthropology, agriculture, architecture, climate and earth science, ecology, economics, energy, engineering for sustainable infrastructure, public health, public policy, sociology, and transportation. The Council will work to integrate this diversity of effort and to develop new opportunities. The public and private sectors in the State are also deeply engaged in environmental issues, to which they too bring great strengths.

Eric Wachsman is the University of Maryland Energy Research Center's first director. Wachsman spearheaded the creation of the Florida Institute for Sustainable Energy at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Fla. He received a Ph.D. in materials science and engineering from Stanford University and a B.S. in chemical engineering from the University of California at Berkeley. Prior to coming to the University of Florida, Wachsman rose through the ranks from post-doctorate to senior scientist at SRI International. Wachsman has focused his career on developing advanced, efficient, energy conversion devices and technologies. His research is on ionic transport in solids and the heterogeneous electrocatalysis at their surface. This research includes the development of solid oxide fuel cells, gas separation membranes, solid-state gas sensors, the electrocatalytic conversion of CH4, and the post-combustion reduction of NOx using advanced ion conducting materials.
