History

The Engine Combustion Research Group at Stony Brook University was established in 2014 to conduct fundamental and applied research on spark-ignition, diesel, and advanced combustion engines. The group has office space, access to the high performance computing clusters of the Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS), and a laboratory facility located at the Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center (AERTC). Currently, the group includes 2 active faculty members, 7 PhD students, and 10 masters-level and undergraduate students.
