Professional Summary

Dr. Weber’s research interests lie in developing tools to apply fundamental combustion insights to solve engineering problems. Recent work has focused on (1) developing novel experimental platforms to study chemical kinetics and emissions during combustion of conventional fuels and alternative fuels including alcohols and biodiesel and (2) computational analysis of detailed reaction mechanisms for combustion of conventional and alternative fuels. This research utilizes experimental and computational analysis techniques to detail the important reactions and species leading to environmentally harmful emissions and helping to build the next generation of engineering tools.
