Research Interests

Joel Lisanti’s research interests include isochoric heat addition for pressure gain gas turbine applications, the study of unsteady, acoustically resonant combustion devices for the purpose of producing quasi-isochoric heat addition in a simulated gas turbine environment, and applying optical and laser based diagnostics for the measurement of pollutant emissions in a gas turbine environment.
