Today we heard from newest member Anoop Mathur, who was accompanied by his wife Preeti.  Both of the Mathurs have Masters Degrees - Anoop's in Chemical Engineering from the University of MN, and Preeti's in Journalism.  Anoop had a long career at Honeywell before leaving to start a new venture, Terrafore Technologies LLC, a development company active in the fields of energy efficiency and renewable energy with a specific focus on Thermal Energy Storage.  During his time at Honeywell, Anoop was awarded 28 U.S. patents and made technology contributions in many areas:  advanced sensors and controls, advanced materials, neural networks and A.I., wireless sensors and solar technologies.  He also donates his time to a number of volunteer activities, including the Science Museum of MN, the local Indian American Organization, the Sehgel Foundation and F.A.T.H.E.R., a group which helps with adult education to allow individuals to obtain their GEDs.  He and Preeti are the proud grandparents of two little ones, who reside in London with their daughter and son-in-law.  They also have a son in the Twin Cities.  We are so pleased to have this very busy and accomplished man as part of our Arden Hills/Shoreview Rotary!  Thanks to Mark Stange for his recruiting effort, which followed a chance meeting to return Preeti's lost cell phone, which Mark had found in the middle of the road!
