Scientists Burst onto Influential List for Combustion Research
Date:7/25/2014

Memorial Award, SAE's Arch Colwell Award of Merit in 2000 and 2003, Wilhelm Jost Memorial Lectureship at Deutsche Bunsengesellschaft far Physikalische Chemie/Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Gattingen and Docteur Honoris Causa from the Institute National Polytechnique de Lorraine. In addition, he was president of the Combustion Institute from 2008-2012.

William Pitz

LLNL engineer Pitz' research focuses on development of chemical kinetic mechanisms for hydrocarbon fuels, oxygenated fuels and oil-sand derived fuel and applying these mechanisms to problems such as combustion in homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) engines and diesel engines.

He earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in engineering from Purdue University and his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, where he did his thesis work in the combustion area.

After accepting a postdoc position at LLNL working for Westbrook in the area of developing chemical kinetic models for hydrocarbon fuels, he has continued his career at Livermore in the same field.

The Thompson Reuters list highlights some of the standout researchers from the past decade, from a compilation of 3,000 of the most influential authors in 21 fields of science or social science. These researchers earned this distinction by writing the greatest numbers of reports officially designated by essential science indicators as highly cited papers.

The authors on the World's Most Influential Scientific Minds list rank among the top 1 percent most cited for their subject field between 2002 and 2012. The listings of highly cited researchers feature authors whose published work in their specialty areas has consistently been judged by peers to be of particular significance and utility.
