Meyers, Jeremy P.

Assistant Professor

College or School:
Engineering, Cockrell School of

Mechanical Engineering (includes Operations Research and Industrial Engineering)

Dr. Jeremy Meyers earned his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley in 1998. He joined the faculty of The University of Texas at Austin in 2006. Dr. Meyers researches the design and optimization of electrochemical energy systems, which offer clean and efficient means of power generation and energy storage. His work has focused primarily on proton-exchange membrane fuel cells. He is interested in using both simulations and experimentation to better understand the phenomena which determine the performance and durability of electrochemical energy systems. Meyers has developed models to describe the performance of direct methanol fuel cells and ones to depict platinum dissolution and carbon corrosion in a typical fuel cell system. He is particularly interested in transport phenomena, performance modeling and thermodynamics of electrochemical systems. In 2006, Dr. Meyers and several colleagues at UTC Power won the George Mead Medal for Engineering Achievement, United Technologies' highest technical award for their development of a novel hydrogen fuel cell water and thermal management system. Also, in 2006, Dr. Meyers served as co-chair of the Gordon Research Conference on fuel cells, one of the premier international conferences on the science and engineering of fuel cell development.
