College of Engineering

Sage Kokjohn is an assistant professor of mechanical engineering in the College of Engineering and is additionally affiliated with the Engine Research Center. Kokjohn received his B.S. from Iowa State University in 2006 and M.S. and Ph.D. from UW–Madison in 2008 and 2012. Since joining UW–Madison in 2013, his research has focused on using detailed engine modeling and experiments to explain the mechanisms controlling high-efficiency combustion systems. His areas of interest include turbulent combustion model development and identification of pathways to achieve robust, high-efficiency energy conversion.

Kokjohn is a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and the Institute for Liquid Atomization and Spray Systems.
