About Brent Rubeli

I am a mechanical engineer with over eight years experience in both the public and private sectors. My current research focus is in four major areas:
Brent Rubeli, Mechanical Engineer

  • The effect of depth on diesel engine emissions for underground mining.
  • Applications engineering and regeneration of diesel particulate filter systems.
  • Development of TCIC electronic diesel engines for light duty vehicles.
  • Generation of mining-specific vehicle duty cycles for emissions research.

I currently work at a leading Canadian diesel emissions research facility where I am responsible for test cell operations including engine certification, applied research, and contract research development.

I am a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum.

In my spare time, I enjoy working on my Audi 90 which I recently converted from a gasoline-powered engine to a diesel. I fuel it with bio-diesel that I make in my basement much to my wife's chagrin!
