"The Role of Combustion in an Evolving Energy Landscape"
Hunter Mack will explain the differences between all the Alternative Energy we have today and show how combustion will still need to play a role in our future. The rise in renewal energy sources, such as wind and solar, has greatly impacted how we generate electricity. However, over 80% of our energy comes from traditional processes that relay on combustion to convert fuels into energy. How we use combustion, and where we find the fuels, will play a major role in meeting future energy demands, reducing harmful emissions, and enabling next-generation transportation concepts.
Hunter Mack is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. His research focuses on combustion, biofuels, and energy efficiency. Prior to joining UML, he was a Project Scientist and Lecturer at the University of California at Berkeley, a Senior Engineer at solar concentrator start-up Banyan Energy, and a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Combustion Analysis Laboratory at UC Berkeley. He received his M.S. (2005) and Ph.D. (2007) from UC Berkeley with an emphasis on multi-component fuels in Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) engines. He also holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis and a B.A. in Physics from Hendrix College (Conway, Arkansas.
