GRANTS:

  • Dr. Adam Dempsey, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering, has received a 1-year, $101,750 award, from Aramco Services Company for the project titled, “Conventional Mixing Controlled Combustion in a Heavy-Duty Engine Using Light Naphtha.”

Dr. Simcha Singer, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering, has received a 3-year NSF grant in the amount of $275,112 for the project, “Capturing the impact of real, complex biomass char particle morphology during gasification.”

Dr. Adam Dempsey, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering, has received a 3-year, $3,975,058 award from the Advanced Research Project Agency-Energy (ARPA-e), an office within the US Department of Energy. The project, “Prechamber Enabled Mixing Controlled Combustion of Natural Gas for Ultra-Low Methane Emissions from Lean-Burn Engines”, aims to reduce methane emissions from the lean-burn engines used in the US natural gas pipeline industry.  Dr. Dempsey and Marquette University are serving as the lead for this project and are collaborating with the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Mahle Powertrain, and Czero.

Dr. Adam Dempsey, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering, has received a 15-month, $2.5M award from the US Department of Energy for the project, “Development of a Flex-Fuel Mixing Controlled Combustion System for Gasoline/Ethanol Blends Enabled by Prechamber Ignition.”  This project includes small and large business partners as well as another academic institution: MAHLE Powertrain LLC; John Deere Power System; University of Wisconsin-Madison; and Clearflame Engines, Inc.  Marquette and the project partners are committing an additional $525,000 in required cost-share to the project.  In addition, the Missouri Corn Merchandising Council has contributed $100,000 to the project.

Dr. Somesh Roy, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering, has earned a 5-year $549,699 award from the National Science Foundation CAREER program for the project titled, “CAREER: A scalable multiscale modeling framework to explore soot formation in reacting flows.” These CAREER awards are highly competitive and some of the most prestigious grant awards that early career faculty may receive.
