Research Institute: 

  • Infrastructure and Environment

Research Theme: 

  • Fire Safety Engineering


As a Postdoctoral Research Associate, Eric is focused on understanding and quantifying various aspects of the physical drivers of fire behavior, particularly as they relate to wildland fires. His current efforts are focused on a multi-scale analyses of wildland fire combustion processes, which crossess from the laboratory to field scale and involves an iterative combination of experimental and numerical techniques.

His general research interests include:

  • Development and testing of detailed physics-based (CFD) fire behavior models 
  • Design of robust and easily deployable sensors for field measurements in wildland fires 
  • Characterization of firebrand generation and exposure 
  • Measurement and simulation of fluid dynamics and thermal transfer in porous media

Academic Qualifications: 

  • BS - Engineering Physics, Summa Cum Laude, Tufts University (2010)
  • MS - Fire Protection Engineering, Worcester Polytechnic University (2012)
  • PhD - Fire Safety Engineering, University of Edinburgh (2017)
