At Our Core
Christin Fine

CHRISTIN  |  Assistant Director for Environment, Health, and Safety

The opportunity to make a difference beyond day-to-day operations . . . Be Safe is our first Core Value, and the work I do supports that and contributes to the physical safety of our employees as they do their jobs every day. My challenge is to provide the most up-to-date health and safety information to keep EERC personnel safe and informed.

The support to pursue professional development . . . Being at the forefront of IT is pivotal to my job, and the EERC encourages me to pursue professional development. It’s great to be able to hone my skillset and stay ahead of the game.

Amanda Livers

AMANDA  |  Principal Geoscientist

The opportunity to not only do cutting-edge research, but to be involved in all aspects of a project, beginning to end . . . As a scientist here, I’m involved in research, but I also get to take part in the planning, logistics, and management aspects of a project, which gives me a real sense of ownership and investment in the success of the work.

Alex Azenkeng

The privilege of working with a diverse team to realize common goals . . . I like the multifaceted nature of applied research, which draws people from different areas of expertise, walks of life, and places in the world. The best part of working here is the people.

Jay Gunderson

JAY  |  Principal Engineer, Combustion Processes

The resources to do work that matters . . . The facilities and equipment we have are state-of-the art, and the testing we do can be defined in terms of procedures, formulas, and data, but the bottom line is that the results we achieve are helping our clients produce cleaner, more affordable energy, and that makes the world a better place.
