Dr. Feser received his Honors Bachelor’s of Mechanical Engineering (2003) and Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (2005) at the University of Delaware. In 2010, He earned his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, where he worked in the area of thermoelectric materials development and the characterization of heat transport in nanostructures. From 2011-2013, he served as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign working in the area of thermal characterization of materials using femtosecond laser diagnostics. In Fall 2013, Dr. Feser joined the University of Delaware Mechanical Engineering department as an assistant professor. Current research interests include the development of new thin-film thermoelectric device architectures, and experimental characterization of heat transfer on ultrafast timescales/ultra-small length scales.
