Janet L. Ellzey

Dr. Ellzey specializes in combustion and has been a faculty member of the Thermal/Fluid Systems area of the Mechanical Engineering Department since 1990. She currently conducts research on environmental technologies such as low-emissions combustors and fuel reformers. Dr. Ellzey was the winner of the 2005 Women in Engineering Student Advocate Award and she along with her co-authors received the Best Paper Award from the 2nd International ASME Conference on Energy Sustainability in 2008. In 2004 she became the Associate Director for International Studies of the Chair of Free Enterprise where she developed study abroad programs for the Cockrell School of Engineering. In 2009, she became Assistant Dean for International Engineering Education for the Cockrell School of Engineering. In 2011 she was inducted into the Academy of Distinguished Alumni of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. Since 2009, she has served as Vice Provost for International Programs at the University of Texas.
