Jonathan Frank

Bio

As the Principal Investigator of the Advanced Imaging Laboratory, Jonathan Frank has extensive experience in the development and application of laser diagnostics for multidimensional imaging of chemically reacting flows. As a leader in his field, he has made important contributions to fundamental understanding of turbulence-chemistry interactions as well as to model validation efforts in combustion science. More recently, his research has turned toward plasma science, catalysis, and investigations of fundamental electron scattering processes, making him an excellent mediator between the fields of plasma physics, combustion, and catalysis.

Research Interests

Imaging and spectroscopy for high-speed, multi-dimensional measurements of neutral and radical flow fields and dynamic systems.
