More than three decades ago, many young scientists aspired to solve
the world’s energy problems with clean, alternative fuels. Yet only a
handful of them considered hydrogen as a viable solution. One of those
hydrogen believers was Nazim Muradov, Ph.D., of UCF’s Florida Solar
Energy Center (FSEC).
This month, both UCF and the National Academy of Inventors (NAI)
will honor Muradov for his work in hydrogen and alternative fuel
sources. On April 5, Muradov will receive the Excellence in Research
Award at UCF and then on April 6, he will be inducted as a Fellow of the
National Academy of Inventors in Boston.
“It’s an honor to be recognized for my achievements. I can’t
express how proud I am that my research and efforts were recognized at
that level,” Muradov said about his election to NAI Fellow status. “Of
course, I have not been doing it alone. There’s a group of scientists
here at FSEC, and we’ve all been working on projects.”
Muradov explained that for half of the 44 patents he holds through
UCF, he was the lead or the sole inventor, and for the other half, he
was a co-inventor. “So essentially, that recognition of me for the NAI
is recognition of our teamwork,” he said.
