Since 2008, Dr. Sivaram Gogineni has served as President at Spectral Energies in Dayton, Ohio. His days are filled with business development, marketing, technology transition, and personnel management. During his tenure, he has led, co-developed Laser & Optical Diagnostics for Gas Turbine Propulsion Systems & Large Scale Wind Tunnels; Data analytical tools for Aircraft Jet Noise; Actuation & Sensing Technologies for Propulsion & Air Vehicle Systems; Plasma Sensor for Turbomachinery & Aerodynamic Applications; Ultrafast (femtosecond) lasers for micromachining & microfabrication; hypersonics, and Aero Optics Research.
Dr. Gogineni has also served as Chief Editor at eFluids.com since 2000. He conceived the idea of a one-stop information web portal for fluid dynamics professionals and developed the resource content in collaboration with Prof. Lex Smits of Princeton University and Prof. Ron Adrian of Arizona State University. This website continues to be used today by many academic and research institutions as a practical and helpful reference tool.
Since 2007, Dr. Gogineni has served as an Adjunct Professor and Advisory Board Member at Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio. He advises students on research projects, judges senior design projects, and assists faculty in proposal writing. He also advises the Department of Mechanical Engineering on curriculum development and on enhancing its reputation in terms of research and technology development.
Engaged with Innovative Scientific Solutions in Beavercreek, Ohio from 1998 to 2007, Dr. Gogineni served in numerous roles, as a Board Member, Committee Chair, Corporate Secretary, Senior Engineer & Program Manager, and Director of Marketing, eventually working his way up to Corporate Vice President from 2003 to 2007. During his tenure, Sivaram designed, co-developed, and implemented Digital Particle Image Velocimetry (DPIV) system for transonic turbomachinery flows, large-scale wind-tunnel facilities, coaxial jet flows, combusting flows, and hypersonic flows; co-developed holographic (3D) flow visualization for reacting and non-reacting flows; and evaluated MEMS technology for turbine heat transfer & hypersonic flow control applications; among many other research and development projects.
Dr. Sivaram Gogineni was a National research Council (NRC) Scholar at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and made contributions to fluid dynamics, combustion, and optical diagnostics.
