Grace Bochenek, formerly chief technology officer at the U.S. Army Materiel Command, has joined the Energy Department as director of the National Energy Technology Laboratory.

She will be responsible for the daily operations of the Office of Fossil Energy’s research and development program laboratory, the DOE said Monday.

“In her new role at NETL, Dr. Bochenek will oversee DOE’s lead laboratory for fossil energy and a portfolio of research critical to the department’s work addressing our nation’s energy and environmental challenges,” said Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz.

“She will lead NETL as it seeks transformative scientific and technological solutions in support of our nation’s all-of-the-above energy strategy,” Moniz said.

Bochenek, a 25-plus-year federal government veteran, most recently served as principal technical adviser on engineering and scientific activities of the Army Materiel Command in her CTO role there.

She previously oversaw the command’s regional centers, the Army Research Laboratory and the Army Materiel Systems Analysis Agency after a stint as director of the U.S. Army‘s tank and automotive research division.
