Testimonial

  • Dear Dr. Lagos,
    Thank you for engraining “GANAS” in us fortunate DOE Fellows at FIU.  Today, the University of Tennessee – Knoxville confirmed my Ph.D. in Energy Science and Engineering with an interdisciplinary minor in computational science.  The DOE Fellows program and your mentoring will forever be impacting my life.
    Very best regards,
    Stephen
