Adam Z. Weber holds B.S. and M.S. degrees from Tufts University, the latter under the guidance of Professor Maria Flytzani-Stephanopoulos.  Next, he earned his Ph.D. at University of California, Berkeley in chemical engineering under the guidance of John Newman.  His dissertation work focused on the fundamental investigation and mathematical modeling of water management in polymer-electrolyte fuel cells.  Dr. Weber continued his study of water and thermal management in polymer-electrolyte fuel cells at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where he is now a staff scientist.  He has authored over 40 peer-reviewed articles on fuel cells, flow batteries, and related electrochemical devices, developed many widely used models for fuel cells and their components, and has been invited to present his work at various international and national meetings including the Gordon Research Conference on Fuel Cells, the Special Invitation Session at FC Expo 2007, and 4 keynote lectures at national society meetings. He has also been the recipient of a number of prestigious awards including a Fulbright scholarship to Australia, the 2008 Oronzio and Niccolò De Nora Foundation Prize on Applied Electrochemistry of the International Society of Electrochemistry, and the 2012 Supramaniam Srinivasan Young Investigator Award of the Energy Technology Division of the Electrochemical Society.  Dr. Weber is also on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Applied Electrochemistry.  His current research involves understanding and optimizing fuel-cell performance and lifetime; understanding flow batteries for grid-scale energy storage; and analysis of solar-fuel generators.
