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.

Designed specifically for faculty interested in exploring entrepreneurship as a path to market for their research, the Veale Faculty Fellowship program welcomes eight fellows this year, four from the Case School of Engineering. Discover the project they’ll be focused on, what innovation means to them and what gets them excited about the crossroads of research and entrepreneurship.
Think of all the products that have electricity running through them. The components of those products -- as well as the products themselves -- ordinarily meet scientific standards for fire safety, and undergo strict testing to be certified.
Background: As Demand for Fire-Safety Experts Grows, so Does Case Western Reserve Engineering Program
The world needs fire-safety experts. New technologies and consumer products create an ever-growing demand for engineers specially trained to prevent fires and electrical hazards.
