Resnick Institute


The Resnick Sustainability Institute presents the Chen-Huang Sustainable Energy Series and the Resnick Institute Public Lecture Series. Both series bring leading thinkers and researchers in energy science, technology, policy, economics, and media to campus to share their views with the Caltech community and the public. The Chen-Huang Sustainable Energy Series has a unique conversational format, where guests engage in discussion moderated by Caltech's Professor Nate Lewis. This series is made possible by the generous support of Dr. Marina Chen (MS '80 CS; PhD '83 CS) and Chi-Fu Huang.
