Dr. Jong Guen Lee is joining the University of Cincinnati's School of Aerospace Systems as an Ohio Research Scholar.
Dr. Lee's research focuses on combustion and propulsion problems in air-breathing and rocket propulsion systems. He has many years of experience in combustion dynamics in gas turbine, ramjet and augmentor, development of various laser-based optical diagnostic techniques with applications to propulsion systems, combustion control and sensors monitoring the combustion process, turbulent flame propagations and multi-phase combustion processes. He has been collaborating with many major gas turbine/aircraft industries such as GE Aviation, GE Energy, Pratt and Whitney, Siemens-Westinghouse, Solar Turbines as well as the NASAGRC and DOE NETL (Natural Energy Technology Laboratory, Morgantown, WV) in those areas. His research interests also include supersonic combustion, plasma-aided combustion, solidpropellants and combustion of alternative fuels. Dr. Lee comes to UC from the Pennsylvania State University where he has been a senior researcher in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
