Assistant Professor Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, OHIO
Dr. Staser is interested in design and analysis of electrochemical systems, especially focused on electrocatalysts and transport phenomena. His efforts combine aspects of experimental work and mathematical modeling to gain better insight into system performance. He is an active member of the Electrochemical Society, serving on the advisory board of Interface, the Society’s quarterly publication. Dr. Staser received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University (2005) and a Ph.D. from the University of South Carolina (2009). Before coming to Ohio University in 2013, Dr. Staser was an Assistant Professor at the University of Puerto Rico.
