The Computational Energy Laboratory (CEL) uses multi-physics computational methods to investigate alternative and advanced energy technologies. Our research focuses on developing computational models of the reactive transport, fluid mechanics, heat transfer and electrochemistry to investigate the design and operation of energy related systems, such as high temperature fuel cells, advanced battery technologies, subsurface transport and post combustion carbon capture. Central to the research in CEL is reactive transport in porous media which is critical to many energy-related technologies and their operation and degradation.

We are always looking for good graduate students. If you are interested in working in the CEL please contact Dr. Ryan (ryanem@bu.edu)
