​​​​​​Research Interests

  • Fire modeling, including Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and zone modeling 
  • Direct numerical simulation (DNS) and large eddy simulation (LES) of turbulent reacting flows
  • High-performance (parallel) scientific computing 
  • Cyber-infrastructure
  • Application of data assimilation to fire and combustion 
  • Physical modeling of fire-related phenomena: buoyancy-generated turbulence; turbulent combustion; soot formation and oxidation; combustion-generated toxic products; radiation heat transfer; wall surface heat transfer; water-based fire suppression systems; pyrolysis, material flammability and flame spread; flash fires, fireballs, and explosions; wildland fire propagation
