Mark Hoffman is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Automotive Engineering at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research. His research interests include: advanced compression ignition, low temperature combustion, in-cylinder heat transfer, waste heat recovery (Organic Rankine Cycles and thermoelectrics), gasoline and diesel particulate emissions mitigation and physics-based modeling. Dr. Hoffman has extensive experimental expertise and teaches the fundamentals of engine and vehicle testing within his research groups.  While he is actively engaged in tailoring combustion chamber wall temperatures for increased low temperature combustion efficiency, he is also involved in collaborative research programs which range from “optimization of an organic Rankine cycle waste heat recovery system for maximum fuel economy” to “control-oriented gasoline particulate mitigation”. Dr. Hoffman attained his PhD (2012) and MSE (2008) from the University of Michigan and received his BSE from Union College in 2003.
