The Center for Sustainable Energy at Notre Dame (cSEND) is pleased to announce that Dr. Hyungrok Do, Assistant Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, has joined the cSEND faculty. Please join us in welcoming Dr. Do to cSEND and wishing him well as he contributes to the research developments in creating a more sustainable energy future for all.
Dr. Do is particularly interested in interdisciplinary approaches tackling various engineering problems. His current research topics are plasma assisted combustion, supersonic combustion, fuel reforming, and plasma aided flow control. As a result of his interest in fuel conversion and bio fuel (e.g., algae fuel) production, he has built a high-pressure (100 bar) and high-temperature (750K) liquid fuel conversion reactor for this purpose.
Dr. Do earned his Ph.D. (May 2009) and M.S. (April 2006) in mechanical engineering at Stanford University. He worked for Hyundai Motor Company as a research engineer for three years before he started his graduate study. He received his B.S. in mechanical engineering from Seoul National University (February 2002).
