A scientist and administrator who has spent much of her career advancing carbon capture has been selected to lead the University of Wyoming’s School of Energy Resources.
Holly Krutka, currently the vice president for coal generation and emissions technologies with Peabody, will succeed Mark Northam as the SER’s executive director, according to a statement from the University. Northam is retiring after nearly 13 years at the helm, as the SER’s founding director.
Krutka’s appointment was approved Wednesday by the UW Board of Trustees, following a national search by UW’s Energy Resources Council, which advises SER on priorities for research and outreach.
