Zakary Campbell-Lochrie is a Lecturer in Fire Science. He teaches in the Mechanical Engineering discipline and conducts research as part of the Institute for Infrastructure and Environmental Engineering. His research focuses on the combustion and fire behaviour of bio-based materials with a particular interest in the fundamental physical processes controlling flame spread, particularly in the context of wildland fires.

This involves theoretical and experimental work across multiple scales in both laboratory and field environments and the development and deployment of multi-scale fire science instrumentation.
