题目：Lecture Series – Fuel/Engine Interactions in Practical Engines and Future Developments
Gautam Kalghatgi has recently retired from Saudi Aramco. He is also a Visiting Professor at Imperial College London and at Oxford university and has held similar professorial appointments at KTH Stockholm, Technical University Eindhoven and Sheffield University. He is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, SAE, I.Mech.E. and the Combustion Institute and is on the editorial boards of several journals. He has been active in industrial research since 1979, in Shell Research for 31 years and in Saudi Aramco since October 2010. He has published extensively, including a book - “Fuel/Engine Interactions” - on combustion, fuels, transport energy and engine research. He has a B.Tech. from I.I.T. Bombay (1972) and a Ph.D. from Bristol University (1975) in Aeronautical Engineering and did post-doctoral research on turbulent combustion at Southampton University for four years before joining Shell.
