To Prospective Graduate Student Applicants:
As should be evident, my group has a special interest in how chemistry and its interactions with convective and diffusive transport affect phenomena of practical interest. We have assembled a rather unique set of experimental and numerical techniques to study these interactions. We are also constantly considering new areas of research and techniques, and many of these are not represented in our cited publications. For example, we are heavily involved presently in a new collaborative research on nano particle enhancement of ignition and burning rates of fuels.
The laboratory presently is composed of professional research staff, post doctoral researchers, research technical staff, and graduate students, creating an energized collaborative environment in which to pursue research. My group collaborates significantly with a number of other research groups in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Chemical Engineering, and the Princeton Environmental Institute. Of special interest beginning fall of 2010 are co-advised PhD graduate applicants and visiting (senior) graduate appointments (for 6 to 12 months) from other institutions.
