Simone Hochgreb is a professor of engineering at the University of Cambridge since 2002. Her research interests include reacting flows, laser diagnostics, combustion, thermoacoustics, and aerosol formation and transport. Prior to Cambridge she held positions at Sandia National Labs, Exponent Inc. and at MIT.
PhD in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, 1991
BSc in Mechanical Engineering, 1986
Universidade de Sao Paulo, Brazil
In this project we are trying to use a known spectrum of turbulence to understand the mixing rate (and reaction) of turbulent flames.
Laser-induced incandescence particle image velocimetry (LII-PIV): a new technique for discriminating droplet and gas velocity.
We are always looking for talented academic researchers interested in reacting flows and energy. If you are a UK or EU applicant with top credentials, you may be eligible for a doctoral training fellowship. Top international students may also apply, but funding is less probable.
PhD student interested in nanoparticle formation, using laser-based techniques to understand the formation and agglomeration of particles. Top academic credentials with background in physics, chemistry or engineering.
