  • Alexis Abramson appointed faculty director of the Great Lakes Energy Institute at Case Western Reserve University. Abramson, associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, has been with the Case School of Engineering since 2003, and has focused her research on novel techniques for thermal characterization of nanostructures; the design and synthesis of unique nanomaterials for use in alternative energy applications; and strategies to accelerate technology commercialization at universities and research institutions. Since 2011, Abramson has served as Chief Scientist of the Department of Energy’s Building Technologies Office, which invests about $90 million per year in the creation of energy-efficient and cost-effective building technologies that are within five years of being market-ready. Abramson’s work there has developed strategies that focus on quality public engagement, peer-reviewed quantitative analysis and structured prioritization of federal investment projects. The Great Lakes Energy Institute connects Case Western Reserve faculty to create breakthrough research and technologies to transition into worldwide impact. Created in 2008, it has attracted nearly $10 million in energy gifts and has supported energy research collaborations that win major grant funding and educate students. Since the institute’s inception, Case Western Reserve had quadrupled its level of energy-related research.
