Dr. Luke Flynn, HI EPSCoR Director, University of Hawai’i at Manoa

The goal of the Hawai’i NASA EPSCoR Program is to develop an academic research enterprise that is directed toward long-term, selfsustaining, nationally-competitive capabilities in aerospace and aerospacerelated research. The Hawai’i NASA EPSCoR Program supports a series of collaborative projects that will strengthen ties between the University of Hawai’i system, NASA Centers in closest proximity to Hawai’i, State and Federal agencies, and private industry. The Hawai’i NASA EPSCoR Program works with other EPSCoR Programs and similar programs in the State of Hawai’i to accomplish these goals. Dr. Flynn will be working closely with Dr. John Peterson, the POC of the newest EPSCoR jurisdiction, Quam, and has recently been awarded addition Research Infrastructure Development to assist with Guam’s onboarding to the NASA EPSCoR program.
