Orosz receives Echoing Green Fellowship in food, agriculture and environment category

Written by:

Matt OroszCEE’s Matt Orosz Ph.D. ’12 was named a 2012 Echoing Green Fellow on June 7, the same day he received his doctoral hood. Echoing Green, a nonprofit organization that provides seed funding for projects that offer solutions to some of the world’s social problems, selected Orosz for his work on a sustainable energy project in Lesotho, Africa. With the two-year fellowship, Orosz will continue that work, likely under the aegis of STG International, a nonprofit organization he co-founded with Amy Mueller Ph.D. ’12. Both Orosz and Mueller did their graduate research under the direction of Professor Harry Hemond, creating new technology that relies on sunlight to drive a heat engine and produce hot water via an organic Rankine cycle proces. Echoing Green describes this year’s 36 fellows as “visionaries with ideas so bold and convictions so strong they could shake the world.”
