Christopher Edwards


He has done his PhD, UC Berkeley, Mechanical Engineering (1985) and is currently Professor, Mechanical Engineering and Senior Fellow, Precourt Institute for Energy at Stanford University.

Research Interest

The Edwards research group is focused on fundamental research for advanced energy technologies. The group performs theoretical and experimental studies of energy transformations such that the conversion process can be made cleaner, more efficient, and more controllable than has been possible with traditional technologies. Applications include advanced transportation engines (piston and turbine) and advanced electric power generation with carbon mitigation.
