The University said, "Professor Najmabadi brings to the directorship a strong record of scientific achievement in the area of fusion research for which he is internationally recognized." When asked about his plans for the future of the center, Prof. Najmabadi said: "More than ever before, society is recognizing the importance of energy for a healthy economy and a secure future. I expect that many new opportunities will arise to leverage our existing strengths and to broaden and grow the center's activities. These are exciting times to be involved in energy research."
The Center for Energy Research is independently administered as an academic research unit that encourages interdisciplinary interactions among UCSD faculty, research staff and students, and is aimed at promoting and coordinating energy research and education. Joining Prof. Najmabadi as Associate Directors will be Prof. Steven Buckley, Dr. Mark Tillack, and Prof. George Tynan.
