I have been at Yale since 1985 involved in teaching and research. I periodically teach undergraduate courses in the thermal/fluid area including: Thermodynamics, Aerodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Propulsion, and Laboratory on Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics. My most recent effort has been the development of a class on Energy, Engines and the Environment, covering thermodynamics, global warming, fossil fuels and renewable energy.  I also teach graduate classes in Combustion. On the research front, my research focuses primarily on combustion and electrospray fundamentals with applications. See details on CV and recent publications.



I anticipate one opening for graduate students each year. Interested students should familiarize themselves with the application procedure and apply by December. Unfortunately, because of the high volume of inquiries, I seldom reply to email queries.
