Chih-Jen (Jackie) Sung receives the Prestigious 2024 AIAA Energy Systems Award
Prof. Jackie Sung was awarded the 2024 AIAA Energy Systems Award for his significant contribution in the broad field of energy systems, and specifically for his outstanding contributions to flame dynamics and low-temperature chemistry for developing fuel-flexible, ultra-low emission, efficient combustion energy systems using conventional and alternative fuels.
He will be recognized during the 2024 AIAA SCITECH Forum, 8-12 January 2024 in Orlando, FL. The prestigious award is sponsored by the AIAA Terrestrial Energy Systems.
Dr. Sung’s research and teaching interests have included structure of chemically reacting flow, catalytic combustion, micro-propulsion, laser diagnostics, supersonic combustion, unsteady and high-pressure flame phenomena, soot and NOx formation, flame extinction and ignition, development of detailed and reduced chemical kinetic models, alternative fuel utilization and combustion, and clean combustion technology. His research is funded by various federal and industrial sponsors. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the Combustion Institute, an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), an elected member of the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering, and a member of the Editorial Board for Combustion Theory and Modelling.
