Victor B. Oyeyemi, Chemical and Biological Engineering
Victor investigates the combustion chemistry of biodiesel using tools of quantum chemistry. Specifically, he uses quantum chemistry models as an accurate method to calculate thermochemical properties, such as bond dissociation energies, that are relevant to biodiesel combustion. In addition to his research work, Victor is involved with organizing the Princeton Research Symposium.
