My research is in the area of heat transfer science and engineering, an emerging field that seeks to develop an understanding of energy transport at an atomistic and carrier level [e.g., phonon (lattice vibration), photon, electron, and fluid particle]. I use a combination of atomistic calculations, statistical thermodynamics, traditional heat transfer analysis, and bulk and micro/nanoscale experiments to solve critical problems in energy research.

ExpecTAtions

September 4-5, 2013

Meet in room RCH 302 at 8:30 a.m. on September 4th

This 2-day workshop introduces participants to being a Teaching Assistant in the Faculty of Engineering.

Tuesday, August 20, 2013 — 3:30 PM EDT


Abstract: The world is faced with energy challenges with depleting fossil fuel reserves. Although with successful exploitation of shale gas and shale oil, the long-term economic benefits on shale fuels use considering the environmental damage are unknown. Biomass is abundant worldwide and its derived energy is regarded renewable and cost-effective. Additionally, the use of bioenergy from biomass is claimed to be carbon neutral since the biomass has supreme capability to biofixation of CO2. However, the cost of biodiesel production from biomass is high.

The Institute for Polymer Research is pleased to announce the following seminar:

Title: Arborescent and other branched polymer structures: Why bother?

Presenter: Professor Mario Gauthier, Department of Chemistry, University of Waterloo

Date: CANCELLED -

Wednesday, July 10, 2013 — 3:30 PM EDT

Cross Canada Tour Lecture

Sponsored by the Canadian Catalysis Foundation

Thursday, July 4, 2013 — 3:30 PM EDT

Abstract: The North American Oil & Gas industry is going through a phase of profound change that has significant implications for Canada with respect to the economy, the workforce. In the first half of my talk will cover the ways in which the industry at large is reacting to these changes, as well as possible implications for further development of the oil sands reserves in Canada and supporting research and development activities.
