Director, Center for Innovative Fuel Cell and Battery Technologies at thr GTRI
Tom Fuller joined the faculty from United Technologies Corp. where he was Director of Engineering at UTC Fuel Cells. He was responsible for both leading technology development and completing the design, construction, and delivery of fuel-cell stacks to customers. Prior to UTC, Dr. Fuller worked as a post-doctoral fellow at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory. The primary project was the development of advanced lithium batteries for transportation applications. Dr. Fuller also spent six years on active duty in the U. S. Navy and continued to serve in the Naval Reserve until 2001, when he retired at the rank of Commander.
Dr. Fuller has an appointment as a principal research engineer at Georgia Tech Research Institute. He directs the Center for Innovative Fuel-cell and Battery Technologies, which is located in the Aerospace, Transportation, and Advanced Systems Laboratory. GTRI is recognized for their ability to develop and test prototypes rapidly. Their expertise is in integrating distinct and often disparate technologies into functioning systems. GTRI is also able to draw upon the resources of the university to provide state-of-the-art solutions to customers. The center has the capability to develop, design, build, test, and deliver prototypes to customers for power systems from a few watts to 100 kW.
Dr. Fuller is a member of the Electrochemical Society and the American Chemical Society.
