We study fluid dynamics phenomena using computer simulations, particularly fluid flows involving chemical reactions such as combustion. Our work extends from chemical kinetic reaction models for transportation fuels to computationally expensive, direct numerical simulations of turbulent combustion.

Our research focuses on numerical methods to reduce the computational expense of accurately simulating combustion and engineering fluid flows, as well as the actual physical phenomena like turbulence-chemistry interactions and smoldering combustion.

AJ Fillo, PhD candidate in the NRG, developed and starred in the pilot LIB LAB episode episode, an educational STEAM outreach video on propulsion.

AJ was also recently featured in a story on the MIME website about both his research and the LIB LAB video series.
