Craig T. Bowman
Craig T. Bowman received his undergraduate education in mechanical engineering at the Carnegie Institute of Technology and his graduate education (M.A., Ph.D. degrees) in aerospace and mechanical sciences at Princeton University, NJ, USA. Before joining the faculty of the Stanford Mechanical Engineering Department, he was a Senior Research Scientist at the United Technologies Research Center. He was the Head of the Combustion Research Group and worked on problems related to combustion chemistry and to pollutant emissions from gas turbines. Professor Bowman’s research at Stanford is in the areas of combustion, reaction kinetics, environmental impact of combustion, and pollution control. He is the author of over 100 journal articles and three book chapters in these areas. Moreover, he has served as the Chair of the Western Section of the Combustion Institute and was the Program Chair for the 20th International Combustion Symposium. Until January 2003, he was an Editor of Combustion and Flame, the major international research journal in the field of combustion. In 1996, he received a Humboldt Research Prize from the German government for his work in combustion chemistry, and he was the 1998 recipient of the Zeldovich Gold Medal of the Combustion Institute for outstanding contributions to the theory of combustion, particularly modeling combustion and pollution chemistry. .
