Moazzam Nazir had a master’s degree in electrical engineering and a job with a research institute in Pakistan when he realized he needed to expand his knowledge.
He applied for a Fulbright scholarship, got it and packed his bags for Clemson University.
He studied on the main campus for a year and then headed for the Charleston area, home of Clemson’s world-class energy-research facilities: the Duke Energy eGrid and the Dominion Energy Innovation Center. It’s also the home base for Moazzam’s advisor, Johan Enslin.
“This provided me an opportunity to work in both an academic and professional work environment,” Moazzam said. “I have developed strong relationships at both places, and I am excited to act as a bridge between the two campuses.”
