This faculty lunch discussion with Mr. Hederman will explore research and teaching interests. He will give a short presentation on two topics, global energy security and market oversight, and then will open up for comments, questions, and conversation.

William F. Hederman is the Deputy Director for Systems Integration and Senior Advisor to the Secretary. Mr. Hederman began his professional career as a systems integration engineer at Bell Labs in the directorate that later developed the cell phone system. He served on the RAND Corporation's research team that pioneered analysis of Federal technology demonstrations, worked as the Congressional Budget Office's first energy and science budget analyst, and led the establishment of the policy analysis department at INGAA (pipeline association), of the International Energy Agency's gas technology center, and of the Washington office for RJ Rudden Associates (now Black & Veatch).  During the Enron and California crises, FERC Chairman Patrick Wood asked Hederman to join the agency and form the Office of Market Oversight and Investigations, which has been credited with playing a major role in the restoration of confidence in electricity and natural gas regulatory oversight.
