Brief Biography

PhD, University of Science & Technology of China (2013)
Visiting PhD student, Ulster University (2010-2011)
Postdoc, University of Maryland, College Park (2014-2016)
Research Assist Prof, University of Maryland, College Park (2016-2018)

Research Areas

Flame acceleration and deflagration-to-detonation transition (DDT)

Blue whirl

Computational fluid dynamics and combustion modeling

Safety of hydrogen and natural gas as energy carriers.

Professional Activities

Member of the Combustion Institute (2016-present)

Achievements

Dr. Xiao’s research concentrated on flame dynamics, detonations, CFD, fire whirls, and the blue whirl. Dr. Xiao scientific accomplishments include an impressive series of high-quality publications in some of our best journals, PNAS, Combustion and Flame, the International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer, and Proceedings of the Combustion Institute. In particular, his research led to two new discoveries, i.e., the distorted tulip flame and the blue whirl. These are already making a significant contribution to combustion science. His work on flame dynamics, such as distorted tulip flames and their evolution, is very high-quality technical work. His work on the blue whirl and its evolution and dynamics is exciting and has the potential of a creating a new, pollution-free state of combustion.
