Brian Wetton has research expertise in scientific computation and in modelling electrochemical systems. From 1998-2008 he was the leader of the Mathematical Modelling and Scientific Computation (MMSC) group of the MITACS Network Centre of Excellence. The MMSC group had an intensive collaboration with Ballard Power Systems, developing stack level simulation tools for Polymer Electrolyte Membrane Fuel Cells. Dr. Wetton was awarded the inaugural Canadian Applied and Industrial Mathematics Society (CIAMS) Industrial Mathematics Prize for this work in 2010. Since the end of this project, he has contributed to the computational modelling of other electrochemical systems, including a novel direct methanol fuel cell design and a generalized dialysis system for waste water treatment. Current research interests are the modelling of Lithium Ion batteries and numerical methods for phase field models from materials science.
