Dr. Emily Ryan

Dr. Ryan is the head of the CEL in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Boston University. Her research focuses on the development of meso-scale, device-scale and multi-scale models for energy systems.

Bailey is the lab mascot and is passionate about sustainable energy and hot dogs.
William Lane

William received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of New Brunswick. Currently working as a Research Assistant in the CEL, William entered the Ph.D. program in Mechanical Engineering at Boston University in the Fall of 2012. His research focuses on multi-scale and multi-physics modeling of post combustion carbon capture systems, and the validation and uncertainty analysis of these models.

Benjamin Aaron Schrage

Ben received his undergraduate degree in chemistry from Indiana University, with a minor in music. Currently he is a masters student in mechanical engineering and is working as a Research Assistant at the CEL. His research is on macro-scale modeling of the electrochemical performance of solid oxide fuel cells.
Jinwang Tan

Jinwang is a Ph.D. student in mechanical engineering at Boston University. His research focuses on developing transport models of Li-air batteries to investigate the operation and degradation of advanced battery technologies.
