Dr. Sauer completed his undergraduate and Master's studies at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), where he worked on the development of numerical tools for the analysis of heat transfer in microfabrication and non-premixed chemically reacting flows. He then moved to the University of California, Irvine (UCI) to pursue his Ph.D., which focused on experimental and theoretical analysis of tubular microreactors. Dr. Sauer is the Principal Investigator of the Chemically Reacting Flows Laboratory. His work investigates theoretically and experimentally small-scale combustion systems to further the current fundamental knowledge of chemically reacting flows and identify novel configurations. He is particularly interested in the analysis of alternative fuels with the potential to enhance energy production efficiency and reduce the associated emissions.
