Nolan Lacombe is a sophomore at The University of Alabama majoring in mechanical engineering. His interests in research center on combustion engines and general energy transfer mechanisms. During his freshman year Nolan worked in a mechanical engineering laboratory which focused on converting lost fuel vapors within a typical automotive fuel tank to usable fuel. During the future years of his undergraduate research Nolan hopes to continue working on his current fuel tank project and refine the mechanical processes within it, such as the cooling and condensing of the fuel vapors. In the coming years he hopes, alongside Dr. Marcus Ashford with whom he works with in the lab, to present the finalized fuel tank at an automotive convention or to local automotive companies. After his undergraduate years, Nolan plans to attend graduate school to achieve his masters in mechanical engineering. He is very eager to lend his knowledge and dedication to help other students get involved in undergraduate research.
