Dr. Ofodike Ezekoye is an expert in combustion and heat transfer in high temperature and reacting systems such as combustion engines, furnaces, and structure fires. His research covers a range of applications from fundamentals of combustion systems to scientific support of the fire service in developing fire fighting tactics. In recent years he has been a pi or co-pi on funded research from the Department of Commerce, AFOSR, and DOE. He has published over 200 journal and conference papers in heat transfer and combustion and has co-authored books on heat transfer and a book chapter on ignition.
