During that time, he was appointed Visiting Research Fellow at Harvard University where his research on materials for fuel cells was funded by the National Science Foundation Leadership Development Initiative for young investigators. His collaboration with the Army Research Lab in Aberdeen, Maryland during his tenure at UVI, as a visiting scientist afforded him the opportunity to have his work used for outreach and educational purposes. He is currently an Adjunct Research Associate at Columbia University where his research is focused on studying the properties of 2-dimensional materials.

Dr. Archibald has received many grants from national and international agencies some of which include The National Science Foundation, The US Virgin Islands Department of Education, The United Nations Environment Program, and The US Department of Energy. He has done much work on energy development in the US Virgin Islands and has been instrumental in providing solutions and pertinent information to members of the local legislature on energy and environmental issues. Additionally, his publication, “Islands in the Sun and The Solar Power Deployment Initiative in the US Virgin Islands” was featured on the cover of the Institute of Electrical andElectronics Engineer (IEEE) Electrification Magazine (March 2015 issue). He is also a co-author of the Caribbean chapter of the Fourth National Climate Assessment.
