Catell currently serves as chairman of the New York State Smart Grid Consortium and chairman of the Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center (AERTC) at Stony Brook University. He served on the Board of New York State Energy Research & Developmental Authority and is on the NYS Economic Development Power Allocation Board. He has been chairman of Applied DNA Sciences' strategic advisory Board since its inception in February 2016. His appointment to Applied DNA's Board of Directors increases the size of the Board to seven members.
