Mike Kuron has extensive experience managing and performing CFD consulting projects across a wide range of applications, including the aerospace, nuclear, defense, power generation, and electronics industries. He earned his Ph.D. at the University of Connecticut, concentrating in the field of computational turbulent combustion.  His Ph.D. research focused on developing models for species mixing in turbulent premixed flames, as well as transported probability density function methods in turbulent combustion. As CFD Manager at CAE Associates, Mike manages all computational fluid dynamics activities, including consulting, software sales, technical support, and training.

Outside of the office, Mike likes to spend his time playing golf, where his handicap will hopefully start going down since completing his Ph.D.
