Sean Ashman graduated from RIT in 2006 with his BS degree in Mechanical Engineering. He is currently working on his MS degree.
Matt Benedict joined the team in December of 2006 to assist with the fuel cell research funded by the US Department of Energy.
Chris Donnelly is a dual degree student entering his third year in RIT’s mechanical engineering program this fall. He began working in TAμFL in June 2010 as his first co-op. His main project has been infrared imaging of flow boiling. Using a high speed infrared camera and a large power source he filmed the heat transfer of nucleation events. He plans to continue working in the lab through the academic year, further investigating flow boiling. His other work includes continuation of current roughness experiments, and some design and machining of parts.
Christen Gillis is a student of mechanical engineering technology entering his junior year at RIT. During the first Co-Op of his with the lab, he has had the opportunity to explore the micro-fabrication of parts and tools needed to aid in the assembly and testing of various on going projects in the labs. He has made the most of this opportunity by gaining experience with traditional and non-traditional manufacturing machines.
Ravi is a 4th year mechanical engineering student at the University of Southern California. He has been a co-op student in the TAMFL lab during the summer of 2010, studying evaporative heat transfer.
Savan is a 2nd year mechanical engineering student at the University of Maryland. He has joined the TAMFL lab in June 2010 as a co-op student and is studying water transportation in trees.
Julian Peters graduated from RIT in 2006 with a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering. He worked in the TAMFL lab as a co-op during the summer of 2006.
Charles began working at the TAMFL in the Fall of 2006 as a co-op student during his fourth year as a BS/MS Mechanical Engineering student. He worked on water management studies in PEM fuel cells, specifically water droplet dynamics.
Andy was a co-op student working on fuel cell related research.
