HUNTER MACK, Ph.D.

Associate Professor
Department of Mechanical Engineering & Energy Engineering Graduate Program

Dr. Mack joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Lowell as an Assistant Professor in the Fall of 2014.  His research focuses on the development of tools to rapidly evaluate novel fuels for use in existing and next-generation engines, both in transportation and stationary applications.  Additionally, he is interested in renewable energy applications with respect to energy storage.  Before joining the faculty at UMass Lowell, Dr. Mack was a Lecturer and Project Scientist at the University of California at Berkeley, where he also received his doctoral degree.  After his completion of his Ph.D., he held a post-doctoral research position at UC Berkeley and worked at a successful solar energy start-up before returning to academia.  He additionally holds a B.A. in Physics from Hendrix College (Conway, Arkansas) and a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Washington Univesity (St. Louis, Missouri).
