Brook Byers Professors, BBISS Fellows, and GRA Scholars

Inaugural Class of BBISS GRA Scholars

Visit the BBISS GRA Scholars Page to learn about the seven Brook Byers Institute for Sustainable Systems Graduate Research Assistant (GRA) Scholars that were recently selected for a 2-year program that launches in the Fall of 2021.


The Brook Byers Professors

Made possible by a gift from Shawn and Brook Byers, a 1968 Georgia Tech alumnus in Electrical Engineering, the Brook Byers Professorships provide resources to enable and enhance cross-disciplinary, collaborative research and education in sustainability, energy, and water. Recommended by their peers, the three recipients were chosen by the Provost and approved by the Board of Regents. The appointments recognize superior scholarly achievement and the potential for further progress. The Brook Byers Professorship is the highest title bestowed at Georgia Tech for those specifically engaged in sustainability related research and education.

The BBISS Fellows

The purpose of the Fellows program is to serve as a board of advisors to the BBISS; to foster the culture and community of sustainability researchers, educators, and students at Georgia Tech; and to communicate broadly the vision, mission, values, and objectives of the BBISS. Fellows will work with the BBISS for three years, with the potential for a renewed term.
