Dear Dr. Orr:

Thank you for the email announcing your Five-year Anniversary Special Event. Congratulations on such relevant and timely research. I am very interested in attending the event, but have relocated to Nevada from San Francisco and won’t be able to make it.

I’m writing to thank you for your publically available information, and ask a few questions. At your GCEP website under [Research], I am grateful for the reports “Advanced Transportation” and “Batteries for Electric Vehicles” as well as at the Presentations available at the Advanced Transportation Workshop summary under [Events].

It’s great to see interdisciplinary research bringing together energy and transportation. Are you integrating the ground-breaking research over at Terman? Have you considered Dr. Yi Cui’s recent breakthrough in Lithium? How will the new CarLab’s mission to “radically rethink the automobile” fit into your GCEP vision?

The reason I’m asking these questions, is because I cited your center (see Statement of Purpose) as a research example of the many projects that have taken place between automakers and Stanford over the years. Toyota’s massive contribution to GCEP intrigues me and I’m very curious about their expectations and research requests from GCEP.

I have been so impressed with the timely world-class automotive related research at Stanford’s that I recently applied to the Management Science & Engineering’s doctoral program to pursue the dream to continue my Master’s research.

I would like to thank you again for your team’s hard work and inspiration!
