Subbaraman to Play a Key Role in Advanced Energy Systems Growth Initiatives at GTI
09/02/15 Des Plaines, IL
Gas Technology Institute (GTI) is pleased to announce that Dr. Ganesan (Subbu) Subbaraman has joined GTI as the first member of the newly launched Fellowship Program.
Subbu comes to GTI from Aerojet Rocketdyne (AR), where he spent almost 15 years managing programs for commercializing new products and services in the energy market. In late July, GTI acquired the assets of AR’s energy systems portfolio—patents and other intellectual property, physical assets, and technologies—as AR exited the terrestrial energy business to refocus efforts on their core aerospace business.
Most recently, as the Manager of Energy Systems Business Development, Subbu led efforts in strategy development, market assessments, securing resources, and establishing teams for developing and commercializing technologies related to combustion devices, rotating machinery, heat transfer, and advanced materials. He has hands-on experience with key technologies across the spectrum of gas and oil production, gasification, gas-to-liquids, power generation, and hydrogen generation.
Subbu holds a B.E. (Honors) in Metallurgy from University of Madras in India, an M.S. in Metallurgical Engineering and a Ph.D in Nuclear Science & Engineering from Virginia Tech, and a Program Management Certificate from West Coast University.
"We're happy to have Subbu join us," says David Carroll, GTI president and CEO. "With his intimate knowledge of the technologies we have acquired, as well as his technical and business experience, the mentoring he will provide to our staff will enhance our capabilities and help us deliver results quicker."
GTI's new Fellowship program will bring in individuals with specific expertise and experience to complement the talents of our innovative scientists and engineers. Through their fixed-term engagement in research and development programs as well as mentoring efforts, participants will enrich and expand our technical knowledge as they benefit from collaborating with our team. Fellowship participants will leave a positive imprint on our organization while helping to bring transformational solutions to industry.
