Warren worked on the Viking mars meteorology experiment while at NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies, and went on to work on the aerodynamics of the stealth fighter at Lockheed. At the energy technology Company Acumentrics, he was Vice President of Technology, leading a team of 50 scientists and engineers developing state of the art high temperature fuel cells. While at Acumentrics, Warren obtained a nine year 74 million dollar Department of Energy grant to develop and commercialize solid oxide fuel cells. Subsequently, Warren acted as a consultant for the Department of Energy, reporting to the Chief Technology Officer and lab director. At DOE, he brought in new technologies and partnerships with industry, as well as briefing members of congress and their staff on the work of the DOE. As a way of giving back to the community,
Warren recently taught math and science at the high school level. In 2019, he contributed the remote sensing, attitude control, and telemetry sections to the successful NASA Cubesat Launch Initiative proposal for MESAT-1, the first satellite from the state of Maine.
Warren Ziegler obtained his PhD in Atmospheric Science from New York University, and holds U.S. and international patents on solid oxide fuel cells and related technologies.
