Catherine Koshland research group
Ongoing research projects include:
  • Combustion Processes: Emission, Monitoring, and Intervention
Professor Koshland's research and teaching are at the intersection of air pollution, combustion, energy and public health. She works with graduate students in Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering as well as in Public Health and Energy and Resources. Her primary research has been focused on the analysis of pollutant formation in combustion processes including the study of fundamental chemical kinetic mechanisms for chlorinated hydrocarbons, droplet and spray combustion and the development of advanced diagnostic tools for non-intrusive monitoring of combustion species including CHCs and metals. In addition, she has worked with a number of students at the intersection of energy (combustion), air pollution and environmental (human) health examining exposure assessment, strategies for reducing NOx emissions from the electric power industry, and public participation in environmental decision making. Her most recent work is in the area of green manufacturing and industrial ecology, addressing the conception and assessment of improved technologies in energy and manufacturing that address environmental needs and the barriers to the implementation of new technologies or policies.
