Dr. Matthew F. Bundy is the Director of and a supervisory mechanical engineer in the National Fire Research Laboratory (NFRL) of the Fire Research Division (FRD) of the Engineering Laboratory (EL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Dr. Bundy joined NIST in 1999 as a NRC/NIST Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Fire Research Division and studied suppression of low strain rate laminar diffusion flames in microgravity.
As the supervisor of the Large Fire Facility, Dr. Bundy led projects studying uncertainty of heat release rate measurements in large scale fires, flammability measures for polymeric materials, and under-ventilated compartment fires.
Dr. Bundy has co-authored more than 30 journal articles and conference proceedings and is a member of The International Association for Fire Safety Science (IAFSS), and associate member of the North American Fire Testing Laboratories (NAFTL).
