Morelli studies thermoelectric technology – an environmentally friendly method of taking waste heat sources and turning them into electricity.

“To me, this award represents a recognition by all of my colleagues and collaborators internationally of my scholarship in the field of thermoelectricity and my efforts on behalf of the society to further its mission across the globe,” he said.
