Neil Donahue Named Director of the Steinbrenner Institute
Carnegie Mellon University has named Neil M. Donahue director of its Steinbrenner Institute for Environmental Education and Research (SEER). He succeeds David A. Dzombak, who recently assumed leadership of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
"It's a great opportunity to lead such a diverse and dynamic institute as environmental issues continue to emerge. I look forward to having our research complement ongoing work at the newly created Scott Institute as we all strive to solve the environmental and energy issues of the 21st century," said Donahue, a professor of chemical engineering, chemistry, engineering and public policy, and founding director of CMU's Center for Atmospheric Particle Studies.
Mark Kamlet, CMU provost and executive vice president, praised Donahue for his outstanding research and leadership abilities. "We look forward to having Neil as the new director to continue to help the Steinbrenner Institute change the ways the world thinks and acts about the environment," Kamlet said.
