Elizabeth Brownell - Research Specialist/ Program Manager

Research Interests

I am a mechanical engineer with a background in both physics and chemistry. I enjoy research and development work involving mechanical product design and prototype-scale fabrication, as well as analysis and modeling. My research interests include clean energy technology, water conservation, and combined heat & power (CHP), and my master's thesis focused on the optimization of thermoelectric generators to maximize power and efficiency.
