Dr. Lightly will be meeting with several groups of faculty after her presentation. If you would like to meet with Dr. Lighty, please contact Alison Flatau and we will try to accommodate.
Biography In addition to her position at NSF, Dr. Lighty is a Professor and Past Chair of Chemical Engineering at the University of Utah, located in Salt Lake City, Utah. She is also a By-Fellow of Churchill College. She received her degrees from the University of Utah and has been a faculty member there since 1988. In addition to serving as chair, her administrative positions include founding Director of the Institute for Combustion and Energy Systems and Associate Dean for the College of Engineering. Her research on combustion has spanned many topics including hazardous waste incineration, contaminated soil clean up, health effects and fine particles, air pollution issues along the US/Mexico border, and mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants. Her most recent work has been on experiments dealing with soot formation and oxidation and process modeling of chemical looping combustion for solid fuels.
