Research InterestsImproves the accuracy and realism of computational models of combustion, fire, and fire behavior. Designs experiments that provide data for modeling parameters. Uses computational models of fire to predict fire behavior and to characterize safety risks in specific situations. Develops safer structures that reduce the chance that fires will start, or, that limit the damage that a fire would cause.
