Our group is primarily interested in a wide range of fundamental energetic materials (propellants, explosives, and pyrotechnics) research areas. We focus on state-of-the-art dynamic experimentation and creating novel reactive materials. We develop or apply the most advanced diagnostics often applied in harsh reacting environments to develop improved understanding and characterization. We also seek to develop tailored disruptive energetic materials with unique properties. Ultimately our research aims to improve the performance, safety, or toxicity of energetic materials. We also have interest in energy topics, including coal combustion and hydrogen storage.
Graduates from our group are highly recruited at National Laboratories, academia, and industry. You can reach your career goals from here!
