Associate Professor, Mechanical Engineering
Dr. McFarland leads the Fluid Mixing at Extreme Conditions Laboratory. While earning his graduate degrees he performed research in steam turbine aerothermodynamics, shock-driven variable density turbulence, and supercritical CO2 heat transfer. His current research interests are in shock-driven multiphase flows, energetics, detonations, supercritical vaporization, droplet breakup, and reactions in multiphase flows. He is a Texas native and a graduate of Texas A&M.
