Wenting Sun received his B.E. and M.E. degrees in Engineering Physics from Tsinghua University, Beijing where his studies focused on non-equilibrium plasmas. After that, he graduated from Princeton University, department of mechanical and aerospace engineering working on plasma assisted combustion and combustion kinetics. Shortly after graduation, he joined Georgia Tech in 2013. His primary research interests lie in a broad range of reacting flows (combustion & plasmas) and propulsion systems.
Tim Lieuwen is a professor and David S. Lewis, Jr. Chair with the School of Aerospace Engineering and the executive director of the Strategic Energy Institute at Georgia Tech. His interests lie in the areas of acoustics, fluid mechanics, and combustion. He works closely with industry and government, particularly focusing on fundamental problems that arise out of the development of clean combustion systems or utilization of alternative fuels. If you like making fire, making noise, and saving the planet all at the same time, these are all great problems to work on.
