Scholarly Integrity and Research Compliance Investigator Series: Conversations with Researchers

The Division of Scholarly Integrity and Research Compliance will host its inaugural 2021 event in their Investigator Series: Conversations with Researchers, featuring guest speaker John Palmore Jr., assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Virginia Tech, who will discuss the ethical considerations that inform his research. He will focus on biofuel use, aviation safety, and the benefits of the growing open science movement.

The webinar is open to the Virginia Tech research community to learn about and discuss the ethical considerations that inform responsible research and innovation at Virginia Tech.

Palmore’s research uses computational fluid dynamics to study turbulent, multiphase flows with phase change. Principal Investigator for Virginia Tech's Combustion, Atomization, and Multiphase Physics Research Group, Palmore uses computational fluid dynamics to study fuel production and its use in aviation. The research is under the direct numerical simulation paradigm, which means that the simulations resolve all length and time scales associated with the flow. To perform these simulations, he develops novel numerical schemes that leverage the high performance, parallel computing capabilities of facilities such as Virginia Tech’s Advanced Research Computing Center.

About the series

The SIRC Investigator Series kicked off in 2020 as an enrichment program  focused on integrating the tools of ethical analysis into day-to-day research activities, featuring speakers who discussed the ethical foundations of SIRC’s compliance activities. In the 2021 conversations, Virginia Tech graduate students and faculty will discuss the ethical dimensions of their research.
