KAUST Research ConferenceCombustion in Extreme ConditionsMarch 5-8, 2018
Dr. Sean P. Kearney has recently accepted a position as Technical Director of Spectral Energies LLC. He was previously a Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories, where he was Principal Investigator for a broad range of laser/optical diagnostic development and application efforts. His work has supported code-validation and phenomenological discovery measurements in support of a variety of US national-security programs and spans a diverse application space, including combustion; energetic materials; fluid mechanics; heat transfer; microsystems and remote sensing. He has successfully performed laser-diagnostic measurements in challenging, real-world combustion environments, such as meter-scale pool fires and metallized propellant flames. Dr. Kearney’s recent work has focused on development of ultrashort-pulse femtosecond CARS diagnostics for temperature, species, and pressure sensing. His work on femtosecond CARS development has resulted in two Best Paper Awards at national AIAA conferences and he is an Associate Fellow of AIAA. Dr. Kearney has authored 40 peer-reviewed Journal articles, 55 conference publications and delivered numerous invited lectures.
