The faculty and staff of the Center for Energy Studies mourn the passing of former Executive Director Allan Pulsipher, Ph.D. Under his leadership, the Center saw significant advancement in terms of its externally-funded research, as well as faculty hires, publications, academic presentations and media citations. Allan was kind, funny, an excellent writer and a true scholar. We extend our sincerest condolences to Allan's family and close friends.
