2016 Faculty Researcher of the Year
Dr. Foster Agblevor
Dr. Foster Agblevor came to USU in 2011 from Virginia Tech. As one of USU's newer USTAR hires, his research centers around technology that will turn various organic materials into fuel. Dr. Agblevor became interested in this field because he grew up on a farm.
"Growing up, I always asked myself, 'What can we do with all of these raw materials?'" he said. "When I went to college, I knew the biggest challenge facing our time would be energy, whether we liked it or not. In that case, I knew that's where I should be."
