As Associate Dean for Research and Doctoral Programs within the LC Smith College, Glauser is responsible for overseeing current research activities and coordinating the development of the college’s future research portfolio.
In his own research portfolio, Glauser, along with his co-workers, post-docs, graduate and undergraduate students, conducts major experimental, computational and theoretical efforts to apply low-dimensional models to turbulent and transitioning flows for understanding and control. Flows studied range from high speed aerospace type applications to those around thermal breathing manikins within the micro-environment. Recent work involves developing closed-loop flow control methods based on the use of Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) and Stochastic Measurement (SM) for various turbulent flows including; that over a NACA 4412 airfoil, turbulent jets for noise reduction/enhanced mixing, 3D separated flow control over turrets for improving aero-optics and for improving efficiency and reducing noise on large wind turbines.
Glauser has or is serving as: consultant to the US Army Science Board (current), Program Manager for the Turbulence and Internal Flows Program at the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) from 1996–1999; meeting Chair for the 56th APS Annual Meeting of the Division of Fluid Dynamics, November 2003; Technical Chair for the AIAA Summer Fluid Dynamics Meeting, June 2006; as an ABET evaluator for Aerospace Engineering programs since 2004; and in 2013 accepted a 5 year appointment as an ABET EAC member. Glauser has obtained more than 10 Million dollars in research funding as PI or Co-PI from AFOSR, NSF, NASA, EPA, DoE, Dantec, GE, United Technologies and others.
Glauser has published more than 100 peer-reviewed publications and conference proceedings and has presented more than 100 invited presentations and keynote talks worldwide. Over the past 25 years he has mentored several post docs and more than 30 Ph.D. and MS students. Glauser is a Fellow of; the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the American Physical Society, and the Institute of Physics (UK). In 1995 he was a Fulbright Scholar in Poitiers France. Glauser received his BS (1982) and his Ph.D. (1987) from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, the University at Buffalo SUNY.
