At the June 2, 2014 meeting, the Board of Education recognized our very own Dr. Franco Paoletti! Franco has been teaching science at Hightstown High School since 2002. I remember having an espresso with him at the ‘”New Teacher Lunch” and was in awe of his knowledge…and his accent!
Due to his doctoral thesis which was completed in 1989 and his ongoing research, Franco had been invited to work collaboratively with ENEA Italian National Research Laboratories in Italy on the topic of nuclear fusion energy devices. As a result, Franco was a contributor to an article which was recently published in the international scientific journal Nuclear Fusion . For this peer-reviewed article, Franco listed his affiliation to be the East Windsor Regional School District. He also continues to work on fusion with an international group which is based at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Congratulations to Franco on this accomplishment. We are very proud.
