Saleem H. Ali joined the University of Delaware as Blue and Gold Distinguished Professor of Energy and the Environment on Sept. 1.
He will have responsibilities in the Department of Geography, which is housed in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment (CEOE), and in the Center for Energy and Environmental Policy (CEEP) in the College of Arts and Sciences.
“We are delighted to have Saleem join UD as a Blue and Gold Distinguished Professor,” said Provost Domenico Grasso. “We chose from a strong pool of applicants, but Saleem stood out as a visionary and big thinker — one who will engage in the grand challenges and great debates of our time. He will be a tremendous asset to the University and our students.”
