Lee Strobel

Lee Strobel is a PhD candidate whose research interests are focused on numerical modeling of physics problems, in particular those related to gas discharge and atmospheric plasma physics. In his work to date, Lee has made notable contributions to streamer discharge physics, a field of great relevance for nonthermal plasma generation, a phenomenon that appears naturally during lightning and other atmospheric electricity events and is key for applications such as plasma-assisted combustion, plasma medicine, water treatment, and CO2 conversion. With the support of his second MathWorks Fellowship, Lee will continue to develop numerical models of these discharges and extend them to capture longer timescales relevant to chemical processing and self-pulsating behavior under DC conditions. His research holds the potential to offer major advances in the understanding of self-pulsating discharges under DC voltage, which would represent a seminal contribution to the field.
