Research Assistant Professor, Aerospace Engineering Department, University of Michigan
Professor Limbach is director of the Laser Diagnostics and Plasma Devices Lab (LDPDL) at Texas A&M University. He obtained B.S. degrees in Engineering Physics and Astronomy from the University of Arizona in 2009 and a Ph.D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University in 2015. Before coming to Texas A&M, Prof. Limbach was a research scientist at Colorado State University where he studied novel laser plasma sources and techniques for gas and multiphase combustion ignition. At Texas A&M he has been leading the development of advanced, non-intrusive laser diagnostic techniques for measuring plasma parameters and species composition in dissociated, ionized and non-equilibrium flows with applications to ground test facilities, propulsion, plasma science and plasma chemical processing. He is also leading investigations of gas, plasma and liquid phase transport phenomena with applications to two-phase flows, sprays, aerosol science, and droplet combustion. In 2022, he left Texas A&M and is currently working as an assistant professor in the aerospace engineering department at the University of Michigan.
