The Role of Chemistry within the U.S. Department of Energy: A Program Manager’s Perspective

Chris Bradley

Program Manager, Catalysis Science

Basic Energy Sciences, U.S. Department of Energy

 

The U.S. Department of Energy is an annual $30+ billion dollar cabinet level agency which serves a multitude of roles, including support of basic science, maintenance of the nuclear weapons stockpile, and stewardship duties related to the environmental impact of nuclear technologies. The Office of Science at DOE specifically supports a range of fundamental science and applied activities as well as construction and upkeep of large scale instrumentation utilized across the biological and physical science communities.

 

My role as a program manager lies within Basic Energy Sciences in the Office of Science, which enables early stage research in a range of chemical and materials science disciplines. The seminar will outline the various components and missions of the DOE offices, with particular focus on Catalysis Science and the role of chemistry and chemical engineering in the field. Additionally, opportunities for a range of scientists to utilize DOE research programs and facilities will be highlighted.
