Biographical Sketch

Dr. Ingmar Schoegl is a Chevron Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Louisiana State University. Prior to joining LSU in 2009, he received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin in 2009, and a Diplom-Ingenieur in Mechatronics from the Johannes Kepler Universität in Linz/Austria in 2000. Before his PhD studies, he gained industrial experience at AVL, where he worked in combustion engine research and development. At LSU, he was the faculty advisor of the Formula SAE student club from 2011-23 and has been serving as the director of the ME Graduate Program since 2022. His research interests include fuel characterization, premixed combustion phenomena, flame diagnostics, as well as numerical modeling and data science. Dr. Schoegl is actively involved in open-source code development for Cantera, a chemical kinetics, thermodynamics, and transport tool suite widely used by the combustion research community.
