Professor Kai Luo named inaugural Fellow of the Combustion Institute
UCL Mechanical Engineering’s Chair of Energy Systems, Professor Kai Luo has been elected a lifetime Fellow of the Combustion Institute.
One of 125 Fellows around the world recently recognised by peers with the lifetime honorific title for “…distinguished for outstanding contributions to combustion”, Professor Luo’s research covers thermofluids engineering, combustion, multiphase flow, aeroacoustics, energy and interdisciplinary sciences.
Kai specializes in advanced modelling and simulation approaches for fundamental discoveries and engineering applications and currently leads an EPSRC funded interdisciplinary project into meso-scale engineering.
The Combustion Institute, founded in 1954, is an international scientific society which promotes and disseminates research in all areas of combustion science and technology including internal combustion engines, gas turbine and rocket engine combustion and fire research. The institute is behind two notable journals in the field, the monthly journal Combustion and Flame and the biennial Proceedings of The Combustion Institute.
