Weber Research Group
The Weber group explores electrochemical-based energy-conversion materials and assemblies across various technological platforms and applications. We conduct fundamental research on applied problems, with work focused mainly on exploration of transport phenomena. We comprise a multidisciplinary team of electrochemists, chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, theorists, and material scientists, including undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars. We work extensively with industry, academia, and national laboratories, including being key partners within the Fuel-Cell Performance and Durability (FC-PAD) consortium, the HydroGen – Advanced Water Splitting Materials EMN, and the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP). Most of our laboratories and offices are located in Building 70 or within JCAP.
Welcome Masao Suzuki Shibata to the group!
Masao is coming from Toyota R&D Labs and is joining the lab as a PhD student co-advised by Iryna Zenyuk at UC Irvine and Adam. We are excited to have him and to learn from his industry knowledge!
Goodbye to Lalit, Jon, and Mike!
This weekend, ECG said goodbye to 3 of our wonderful members: Lalit, a postdoc of 5 years and integral group member and two (also very important) visiting graduate students, Mike Pagels from RPI and Jon Grunewald from GT. Lalit will be starting a faculty position at India Institute of Technology Kanpur. And Mike and Jon are returning to their universities to complete their PhD programs. We will miss all of you!
Congratulations to Justin for passing his Qualifying Exam!
Woohoo! Congrats on becoming a PhD candidate.
