[Figure presented] Cherry Murray served as the Director of the United States Department of Energy's Office of Science from 2015 until 2017. She was dean of Harvard University's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences from 2009 until 2014, and Principal Associate Director for Science and Technology from 2007 to 2009 and Deputy Director for Science and Technology from 2004 to 2007 at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. From 1978 to 2004, Dr. Murray held a number of positions, retiring as Senior Vice President of Physical and Wireless Research, at Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies, formerly AT&T Bell Laboratories and previously Bell Telephone Laboratories, Inc. Public funding of energy research and development is essential for supporting the unprecedented transformation that is taking place now in global energy systems, driven by both technology advances and environmental concerns. The nations who develop the technologies required for energy system transformation can position themselves as net exporters rather than importers of new energy technologies as all nations are making multi-billion dollar investments to update their energy infrastructure.
