Peyman Givi, mechanical engineering, discusses how his research aims to create a more fuel-efficient engine design, which he works on by simulating internal combustion using Pitt's Center for Simulation and Modeling and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.
William Harbert, geophysics, discusses how Pitt's Center for Energy, the Center for Simulation and Modeling, and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center provide a powerhouse that aides his research on CO2 sequestration.
Karl Johnson, chemical and petroleum engineering, describes how he uses computer simulation and modeling to find a material that will rapidly absorb carbon dioxide at a low cost, and how Pitt's collaborations with the National Energy Technology Laboratory and access to the Center for Simulation and Modeling and Pittsburgh Super Computing Center help make his research possible.
Gregory Reed, electrical engineering, talks about Pitt's research on smart grid technologies and our partnerships with industry leaders such as Eaton Corporation, Westinghouse Corporation, and CONSOL.
David Waldeck, chemistry, explains how his research on solar cells using nanotechnology may make solar cells more widely accessible someday.
Brian Gleeson, mechanical engineering and materials science.
Jeffrey Vipperman, mechanical engineering.
Kenneth Sochats, industrial engineering.
