Description:

Want to dramatically change the future of energy? ARPA-E is now recruiting!

Join Dr. Michael Campos for a discussion of the ARPA-E approach to innovation, program development, and current career opportunities.

Summary: The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) advances high-potential, high-impact energy technologies that are too early for private-sector investment. Projects provide America's top energy researches with funding, technical assistance, and market advice to radically improve U.S. economic security, national security, and environmental well-being. The session will provide an introduction to the process the agency uses to develop funding opportunities, will discuss upcoming ARPA-E funding announcements, and opportunities for employment as a technical Fellow, Tech-to-Market advisor, or summer intern.

Bio: Campos is a Fellow at the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy, interested in energy storage, advanced materials, and automation. Campos received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Columbia University under the direction of Prof. Jonathan Owen and his B.A. in Chemistry from Northwestern University. In 2012, he was named a Dean’s Fellow, and in 2013, he was named an Edith and Eugene Blout Fellow. For his Ph.D., Campos studied the synthesis of and surface chemistry of colloidal quantum dots for applications including lighting, displays, and photovoltaics. He collaborated with LED startup Pacific Light Technologies and The Molecular Foundry to integrate quantum dots into commercial LEDs. While at Columbia, he co-founded an interdisciplinary seminar series called Moments in Materials and was one of 30 candidates in the New York City area selected to participate in Bain and Company’s consulting immersion program.
