Anthony Jordan, Zhixuan Duan, Andrés Colorado, and Amin Akbari participated in the 8th US National Combustion Meeting, held in Park City Utah from 19 – 22 May 2013.  More than 400 attendees participated in the bi-annual conference which was hosted by the University of Utah.  Each student presented one or more papers on their research conducted at the UCI Combustion Laboratory.  In addition, research by Dr. David Beerer (Ph.D., 2013), currently working at the Aerospace Corporation was also presented by Professor McDonell.  The conference was held at The Canyons resort.  The students were provided with travel support from The Combustion Institute and the Western States Section of the Combustion Institute.  In addition, the Henry Samueli School of Engineering provided travel support to Zhixuan Duan.
