About the Presenters:

Professor Xisheng Luo

Dr. Xisheng Luo, is a professor of fluid mechanics at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). He received his Bachelor degree and Master degree in USTC at 1994 and 1997, respectively. After two years teaching at USTC, he went to Eindhoven University of Technology and received a Doctorate degree in Fluid Mechanics in 2004.

Then he has worked in the Shock Wave laboratory of Aachen University as a postdoc for four years. In 2008 he returned back to USTC and was appointed as a full professor. His research interest includes high-speed flow and interfacial instability. His research team developed a new method for generating convergent shock and extended soap film technique for interface formation. The work of the team led by Dr. Luo has published more than 20 JFM paper and 1 PRL paper on the interfacial instability induced by shock wave.

Professor Gopalan Jagadeesh

Prof. Gopalan Jagadeesh is currently working as a professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering, Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore, India. He is the Founder Chairman of Centre of Excellence in Hypersonics, IISc, Bangalore. He is also the Founder Director of Super- wave Technology Pvt. Ltd. a company formed with equity participation from IISc to commercialize several of his discoveries related to shock waves. Prof. Jagadeesh is one of the leading researchers in Hypersonic Aerothermodynamics and shock wave propagation in complex fluids, which are the most advanced fields of research relevant to space, defense and terrestrial applications. He has published over 300 papers in peer reviewed International Journals, conferences and edited 3 books. He has TWENTY-FIVE PATENTS on various discoveries related to Shock Waves and hypersonic flow control. He is currently the President of the International Shock Wave Institute and the also the Society for Shock Wave Research India.

Professor Elaine Oran

Elaine S. Oran is O’Donnell Foundation Chair and Professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University. Previously she was the A. James Clark Distinguished Professor and the Glenn L. Martin Institute Professor at the University of Maryland. For many years before that, she was the Senior Scientist for Reactive Flow Physics at the US Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC. She received an A.B. in chemistry and physics from Bryn Mawr College and both a M.Ph. in Physics and a Ph.D. in Engineering and Applied Science from Yale University. She is a Member of the National Academy of Engineering, an Honorary Fellow of the AIAA, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Combustion Institute, the APS, AIAA, ASME, and SIAM. She received the Zeldovich Gold Medal from the Combustion Institute and the Fluid Dynamics Prize from the American Physical Society. Currently her research interests include chemically and nuclear reactive flows, turbulence, numerical analysis, high-performance computing, shocks and shock interactions, and rarefied gases, with applications to combustion, propulsion, and all sorts of explosions ranging in scale from micro-dynamical to astrophysical. Her most recent efforts involve developing a large-scale experimental facility to study fundamental questions in shock interactions and detonations.

About International Colloquium on Shock Waves (ICSW)

The ICSW consists of three separate plenary events between 6 and10 December 2021. These events have been scheduled at different times of the day such that at least two sessions should occur at convenient times for participants in all parts of the world.

Each session is three hours in duration and includes two plenary presentations from research leaders in the shock waves community. Session 2 will include a virtual facility tour of the hypersonic wind tunnel facilities at The University of Queensland, and Session 3 will include an awards ceremony from the International Shock Wave Institute (ISWI).

The timing of the three sessions can be seen below, along with links to the pages for each separate plenary event. Please register for the sessions which you are interested in attending so that you can add them to your calendar and receive reminders closer to the date.

All sessions will occur on Zoom and are free of charge. Prior registration on Zoom is recommended to receive updates and to avoid missing out if sessions reach capacity.

The ICSW website link can be found here.
