Dr. Ravi Chaudhary swore in as the assistant secretary of the Air Force for Energy, Installations and Environment during a ceremony at the Pentagon April 7, following his confirmation to the role by the U.S. Senate, March 15.

“A big congratulations to Dr. Ravi Chaudhary on his Senate confirmation. We’re excited for his leadership in our energy, installations and environment initiatives,” said Secretary of the Air Force Frank Kendall. “Ravi’s experience serving in numerous government agencies, to include the Department of the Air Force as a pilot, space launch engineer and acquisition officer, will be a major asset to our team as he steps into his new role.”

In this capacity, Chaudhary is responsible for the execution of plans, policies, programs and budgets to meet the Department of the Air Force’s energy, installations, environment, safety and occupational health objectives.
