Zakary is a PhD student in the BRE Centre for Fire Safety Engineering, in the Institute for Infrastructure and Environmental Engineering. His research focuses on the fundamental physcial 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 to understand appropriate methods for characterising wildland fuels and their resulting fire behaviour.
