Narjisse Kabbaj, Ph.D.


Postdoctoral Fellow

Research Interests

My principal research interests lie in the field of modeling and implementing numerical models of multiphysics couplings in mechanics:
-Modeling of weak plasmas in flames and their interaction with electric fields
-Modeling Nanosecond Repetitively Pulsed discharges into flames
-Quantifying the effects of the radiative properties on thermal plasmas
