Javit DrakeLecturer and MLK Visiting Scholar

Research Interests:
Javit Drake, Ph.D., performs and advises the modeling of chemical transport for prediction, guidance of hands-on experimental direction, and prototypes of chemical systems, predominantly electrochemical storage and conversion devices.  Within the Brushett group, he engages in lithium ion and flow battery projects with the goals of high energy accessibility under fast charge and discharge usage. He and group colleagues combine porous electrode theory with new designs and modes of operation for optimal coupling of electrolyte diffusion, convection, and charge transfer reaction. Beyond electrochemical systems, he also has interest in transport-governed chemical products that may include effects of fluid and solid mechanics.
