Air and Climate Change Research
Dr. Tiffany L.B. Yelverton
Dr. Tiffany L. B. Yelverton is a mechanical engineer in the US EPA Office of Research and Development, National Risk Management Laboratory, Air Pollution Prevention and Control Division (APPCD), Air Pollution Technology Branch (APTB). Tiffany received her B.S. and M.S. degrees in Aerospace Engineering from North Carolina State University in 2003 and 2005, respectively, and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering also from North Carolina State University in 2008.
Dr. Yelverton began her career at EPA in 2008 as a non-federal postdoctoral researcher, and became an EPA Environmental Engineer – Combustion Control Technologies Specialist - in early 2011. Her expertise is in general combustion and particulate matter production and mitigation (specifically soot and black carbon), relating to internal combustion engines. However, during her tenure at EPA, she has broadened her research scope to also include emissions of stationary sources. Her research has been spread across many projects including fundamental flame/combustion characterization, diesel and biodiesel combustion, glycerol combustion, outdoor wood-fired hydronic heaters, metal fuel additives, NOx reduction through the use of SCR, and investigations into black carbon measurement techniques.
