My name is Sarma Pisupati and I am your instructor for this course. I have been at Penn State for the past 26 years doing research and teaching courses related to Energy and Environment. Teaching is the most enjoyable part of my job at the University. I enjoy every minute and I promise that every one of you will get my full attention so that you can succeed in this course and your life.

My research interests are combustion and gasification of coal, pollution reduction from combustion processes, coal and biomass utilization and energy conservation. I have seven graduate students working with me on these topics towards their PhD and MS degrees.

You can visit my website to see more about my activities.

Please do not hesitate to call me or email me (using the Canvas mail system) if you have any questions!
