Leiyong Jiang went to Canada in 1983 as a Visiting Scholar at the Turbulence Combustion and Propulsion Laboratory of the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies (UTIAS), Toronto, ON, Canada, and he completed his Ph.D. degree there in the period between 1990 and 1993. In 1994, he worked as a Computational Fluid Dynamics Specialist at Rowan Williams Davies and Irwin Inc., Canada. He joined the Institute for Aerospace Research (IAR), National Research Council Canada (NRCC), Ottawa, ON, Canada, in 1995, and is currently serving as a CFD Project Leader there. He is leading numerical modeling of reacting and nonreacting flows at the Gas Turbine Laboratory, IAR, NRCC. He has also been in the propulsion and combustion field for over 25 years with more than 100 publications. His current research interests include applications of computational fluid dynamics to nonreacting and reacting flows, gas turbine engines, turbulence scalar transfer, combustion, alternative fuels, and laser diagnostics. He holds Adjunct Professorships at the University of Windsor and the University of Calgary; he serves as a Committee Member of Fuels and Combustion Committee of International Gas Turbine Institute (IGTI), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), USA, and Chair of Coal, Biomass, and Alternative Fuels Committee of IGTI, ASME, USA. He is a Member of the Editorial Board for the Open Aerospace Engineering Journal.
