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.

ECG research is highlighted through our work with M2FCT, H2NEW, HydroGEN, and more. Check out the website here!
Tugrul and Woong are joining the lab as postdocs. Tugrul Ertugrul (left) is a postdoctoral research assistant at the University of Tennessee in Dr. Matthew Mench’s Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion Laboratory. He recently received his PhD in mechanical engineering and minor in computational science from the University of Tennessee. His PhD dissertation mainly focused on determining mass transport parameters in vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) porous electrodes. His research interests also include electrochemical energy conversion and storage systems such as fuel cells (SOFC,… more
