Here we are making available to the worldwide carbon research community ALL the papers of Prof. Philip L. Walker, Jr.
Prof. Walker died on March 22, 2009 after a prolonged battle with a debilitating and vicious disease… May he rest in peace! He lives on, of course, in the fondest memories of his many privileged students and fortunate collaborators, and in his invaluable legacy to the world of carbon materials... His opus is indeed immortal!
These are the courses I teach:
Introduction to Fuel Technology (FSC 401)
EGEE 012: Energy Science and Engineering Lectures
Introduction to Combustion (EGEE 430/ME 430)
Methodology of Scientific Research (EME 590)
Integrative Design of Energy & Mineral Engineering
Systems (EME 580)
Here is a letter to The Daily Collegian, prompted by a letter (dated 12/12/2012) from a senior student, majoring in energy engineering, about the frustrations surrounding cheating on exams. (Note the ironic permutation in CHEAT vs TEACH!) And here is its published version, butchered by an editor who is learning what can and should be published in a college newspaper.
These are the courses I have taught in the past:
These are my research interests:
Teaching and Learning in the Times of google.com: an essay (in Spanish)
Letter to the Editor of El Mercurio (2006, unpublished): “CONSUMIDORES DE ENERGÍA INFORMADOS” (INFORMED ENERGY CONSUMERS)
Letter to the Editor of El Mercurio (2006, unpublished): “GAS DE CARBÓN: SOLUCIÓN ENERGÉTICA PARA CHILE” (GAS FROM COAL: ENERGY SOLUTION FOR CHILE)
Letter to the Editor of El Sur (published 06/2007): “ENERGÍA CON CIFRAS CLARAS” (ON ENERGY, WITH CLEAR NUMBERS)
Letter to the Editor of El Sur (published 07/2007): “ENERGÍA DEL CARBON” (ENERGY FROM COAL)
Letter to the Editor of El Mercurio (2008, unpublished): “CRISIS ENERGÉTICA Y EL ROL DEL COLEGIO DE INGENIEROS” (ENERGY CRISIS AND THE ROLE OF SOCIETY OF ENGINEERS)
Letter to the Editor of Nature (March 11, 2010): as submitted vs. as published… It is disheartening to see how difficult it is to fight for the most sensible of issues: politics and cosmetics in academia should be in the service of scholarship; and yet too often even in academia politics and cosmetics are (ab)used in order to hide the absence of scholarship.
