Dr. Ken Yu is associate professor of aerospace engineering at University of Maryland. He is interested in jet propulsion and power, especially combustor-related issues to improve efficiency, reduce pollutants or suppress instabilities. He has conducted pioneering research on liquid-fueled active combustion control and cavity-based scramjet mixing enhancement. His work has resulted in about 200 publications, including nine U.S. patents and four conference best paper awards.
