The Center on Global Energy Policy (CGEP) at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) announced Dr. Cheryl Martin today as a non-resident Fellow. Dr. Martin’s work at the Center will focus on critical innovation, finance, regulatory and policy dynamics necessary to accelerate adoption of new energy technologies into the global market.
Dr. Martin recently founded Harwich Partners, LLC to work with public and private sector entities on energy technology adoption and is joining the Center directly from her role as Acting Director of the Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) at the United States Department of Energy where she also led the Technology-to-Market program, which helps breakthrough energy technologies succeed in the marketplace. Prior to joining ARPA-E, Dr. Martin was an Executive in Residence with the venture capital firm, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. Dr. Martin also spent 20 years with Rohm and Haas Company, starting her career as a Senior Scientist for the company.
