Dr. Arnie Vedlitz Honored for Research Impact

November 02, 2015

Arnold Vedlitz Dr. ArnieVedlitz, executive associate dean of the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University, was one of three faculty members honored for the impact their research has had in the field of energy, which has been identified as one of the University’s “grand challenges.” They were recognized during a timeout of the Texas A&M–University of South Carolina football game on October 31 at Kyle Field.

Most of Vedlitz’s energy research work focuses on the relationship between energy production and use and climate change.  His research work specifically examines the way in which decision makers and the public view energy’s impact on climate and what, if anything, should be done about it.

In addition to his administrative duties, Vedlitz holds the Bob Bullock Chair in Government and Public Policy and directs the Bush School’s Institute for Science, Technology and Public Policy.

Joining Vedlitz on the football field were Dr. Akhil Datta Gupta, who holds the L. F. Peterson Chair in Petroleum Engineering, and Karen Viero, Associate Professor and Associate Department Head, Nuclear Engineering.

  “I’m delighted to see Dr. Vedlitz honored in such a public venue for his outstanding contributions to the vital issue of energy,” said Bush School Dean Ryan Crocker. “I commend the University and the Athletic Department for their support for our distinguished faculty and for publicly recognizing the significant impacts they have on key research topics.”
