Deborah Jin, a physicist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology and professor adjoint for physics at the University of Colorado Boulder, as well as a fellow of JILA, a joint institute of CU-Boulder and NIST, has been named to the Secretary of Energy Advisory Board by the U.S. Department of Energy.
Jin, along with the other 18 members of the board, will serve as an independent advisory committee to Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz.
“These individuals represent some of the best and brightest in their respective fields and it is a great privilege that they have agreed to offer their expertise to the Energy Department,” Moniz said. “Having a diverse set of voices around the table will ensure that the department has a strategic approach to the nation’s energy, science, nuclear security, and environmental stewardship future.”
The board will include four standing subcommittees that provide advice and recommendations to Moniz on the department's four major mission areas: science, energy, nuclear security, and environmental stewardship.
