Fellow

Biography

Edward Frank is Principal Energy Systems Scientist at Argonne National Laboratory.  Trained in physics, Frank has constructed large-scale computational systems for processing physics data in high energy particle physics. During this work, he was involved in systems architecture, release management, and project management. He has worked in computational biology, contributing to work related to metabolic modeling including building a framework for constructing simulations from data in databases like SEED. Currently, he models emissions and energy consumption of transportation systems and studies new technologies for energy production. Edward collaborates with the Systems Assessment Section of the Center for Transportation Research and also with the Process Technology Research Section in the Energy Systems Division at Argonne. His work currently focuses on analysis of algal biofuels. Frank has constructed finite element models of electrochemical reactors using COMSOL multiphysics.
