Marcis Jansons, assistant professor of mechanical engineering (second from left), with students
From left to right:
•Undergraduate student Jinqiao Wang who is developing an infrared optical technique to measure rapidly varying surface temperatures inside engine cylinders so that computer simulations may more faithfully model combustion processes.
•Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering Marcis Jansons
•Doctoral student Kan Zha, who is developing combustion diagnostic techniques to observe and better understand soot formation processes during engine combustion so that low-emissions engines may be developed.
•Master's student Tejaswini Kamble, who models chemical kinetics of autoignition processes to develop means of controlling advanced, efficient and low-emissions engines.
