Dr. Fatih Dogan, professor of ceramic engineering and interim director of the Center for Research in Energy and Environment, is working with leaders across the country to discuss and develop climate change solutions. His recent efforts include participating in the White House Campus and Community-Scale Climate Change Solutions forum.
Dogan represented Missouri at the forum, and in the break-out sessions, he explained the climate-positive changes S&T has made, such as switching from a coal power plant on campus to geothermal energy.
Dogan says the federal government is supporting more university and industry collaborations to help the country reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. He says S&T’s work will make a significant contribution toward that goal. Multiple researchers throughout the university are conducting interdisciplinary projects related to the environment, and students regularly take part in these studies.
