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.

Nem Danilovic has accepted a position as Director of Cell Development at Electric Hydrogen and his last day at the lab was on Friday, October 15th. Though we are all excited for him in this next move in his career, the lab is certainly feeling this loss. Best of luck in your next position Nem, we miss you already!
Julie won the Women in Chemical Engineering travel award for the upcoming AIChE conference which she will be attending virtually from November 15th-19th. Congrats again Julie!!
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!
