Clean Combustion Winter School
Associate Director of CCRC | Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering
Mani Sarathy is the Associate Director of CCRC and an Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering at KAUST. He joined the university in 2012. His research interest is in developing sustainable energy technologies with decreased net environmental impact. He develops fundamental chemical kinetic models that can be used to simulate fuel combustion and pollutant formation in energy systems. Prof. Sarathy's research in combustion chemistry modeling includes quantum chemistry based kinetic rate calculations, comprehensive mechanism development, combustion cyberinfrastructure development, computer generated detailed and reduced mechanisms, and simulation of multi-dimensional reacting flows. In addition, he obtains data from fundamental combustion experiments to elucidate reaction pathways of combustion, and to generate experimental data needed to validate detailed chemical kinetic models.
