One of the Cullen College’s newest faculty members sat down with Russ Capper of The EnergyMakers Show last week to discuss hydraulic fracturing, alternative energy and more.

Christine Ehlig-Economides, who will join the college as a professor of petroleum engineering this fall, discussed her work over the last 10 years at Texas A&M’s petroleum engineering department as well in the interview. She said she is looking forward to building up UH’s petroleum engineering program to the status of other longstanding national programs. A member of the prestigious National Academy of Engineering (NAE), Ehligh-Economides is the 9th NAE member to join the Cullen College’s faculty since 2008, bringing the total number of NAE members at the college up to 11.
