My students and I receive funding from many sources.

The Oregon State University logo
School of Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering— My lab's primary source of funding is the School of Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering (MIME) at Oregon State University. It pays nine months of my salary, it sometimes subsidizes my graduate students' time through teaching assistantships, it provides space and staff support, and it provides my core intellectual community. The School of MIME's resources come from tuition, fees, and taxes from the Oregon state government, and philanthropic giving.
The DOE logo.
US Department of Energy— Through national labs like Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories, and the National Nuclear Security Administration, I have received funding from the US Department of Energy (DOE) for basic and applied research. My DOE funding projects include:
The SERDP logo.
SERDP— The Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) has funded collaborative research projects studying smoldering combustion and wildland fire. My SERDP funding projects include:
The Sloan Foundation logo.
Sloan Foundation— The Sloan Foundation has supported some of my activites as part of URSSI, the US Research Software Sustainability Institute:
The NASA logo.
NASA— NASA has also supported my group's research into computational methods relevant to aerospace applications:
The Chevron logo.
Chevron— Some of my early work at Oregon State was supported by Chevron, in collaboration with Chris Hagen. Despite the industry connection, this work was fairly fundamental, and mostly looked at suitability of fuels for advanced, highly efficient, low-temperature compression-ignition engines:
  • Further Development of Fuel Autoignition Index Based on Infrared Absorption
  • Advanced Internal Combustion Engine Fuel Modeling and Testing Phase II
