Engineered Fire Safety Group

The Engineered Fire Safety Group develops and applies measurement science for cost-effective fire protection and risk-informed life safety decisions for buildings and wildland-urban interface communities.


The Engineered Fire Safety Group also develops advanced, validated models with quantified accuracy and integrates the knowledge, tools, and models to assess building performance with respect to

  • ignition,
  • fire growth and spread,
  • detection,
  • suppression,
  • toxicity, and
  • egress.

Post-Doc Program Outstanding applicants are sought for a number of postdoctoral fellowships available through the National Research Council Program. Group members act as research advisors for Post-Doctoral Fellows in a variety of project areas.
