Dr. Lee

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.
