About Dr Kai Luo

Professor Luo has a PhD (1992) from Cambridge University and has held various academic positions at Imperial College London, Queen Mary, University of London and University of Southampton.  He became a full professor of the University of London in 2002 and held the Chair of Energy Systems in the University of Southampton from 2004 to 2013. Prof Luo led the UK Consortium on Computational Combustion for Engineering Applications funded by the EPSRC during 2002 – 2010. He is currently the leader of the UK Consortium On Mesoscale Engineering Sciences (UKCOMES) funded by the EPSRC. He has held various international/academic exchange/advisory positions.

Professor Luo’s work covers thermofluids engineering, combustion, multiphase flow, aeroacoustics, energy and interdisciplinary sciences. He is specialized in advanced modelling and simulation approaches for fundamental discoveries and engineering applications. He has done pioneering research in developing simulation methodologies and applying them to multi-physics phenomena/processes across scales (e.g. nanoscale, microscale, mesoscale and macroscale). He has established an international reputation in his research fields.
