Profile picture

Part-Time Lecturer of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science


  • 1997, Other, Mechanical Engineering, SUNY - Buffalo State College
  • 1989, Masters, Aerospace Engineer, Bucharest Polytech


In his early career, Dr. Adumitroaie has performed research in simulation and modeling of high-speed turbulent reacting flows at University at Buffalo, NY and NASA Langley Research Center, VA. Subsequently, he worked on various engineering R&D projects at the CFD Research Corporation, AL prior to joining NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, CA. He has published papers and technical reports on advanced modeling of compressible flows, direct numerical simulations and large eddy simulations (LES) of chemically reacting flows, and magnetohydrodynamics. Dr. Adumitroaie has delivered R&D solutions in turbulent combustion modeling, data dimension reduction, neural networks, signaling pathways and scientific software development. Currently, his work in optimization methods and uncertainty analysis applied to decision problems supports tasks from the JPL's Strategic Technologies Program Office.
