Mirko Gamba | Faculty
Mirko Gamba is an Assistant Professor in the Aerospace Department. His interests include laser diagnostics for fluids and reacting flows, low- and high-speed mixing and combustion. His research has focused on experimental investigation of supersonic combustion phenomena in scramjet-type environments, hypersonic impulse facilities, development and application of PLIF-based techniques for mixing and thermometry in supersonic flows, and turbulent nonpremixed combustion.
