She specializes in interdisciplinary research in meso and micro-scale fluid systems. Her work has included investigation of biopharmaceutical delivery and processing, inhaled aerosol and deposition and optimization of complex fluid systems. She has developed an automated CFD-based optimization process that is currently aiding in the development of gas-turbine blades, solid state lasers, the next generation aerosols for reliable drug deposition to the lung, improved shipping and vial filling practices for biopharmaceuticals. Most recently her research group has moved to fluid-solid modeling to incorporate structural influences in the optimization of the fluid systems.
Her work has been cited 300 times by more than 242 articles resulting in a web of science H-index of 10 and an average impact factor of 2.57. During her 13 years at the University of Denver she has received ~$1.39 Million in external research funding and ~2.62 Million in external educational funding from agencies like NSF, DHHS, DOL, DOD, State of Colorado, Keck Foundation among others.
Dr. Lengsfeld serves as an editorial board member for the journal Atomization and Sprays, as a Board Meter at-large of the Institute of Liquid Atomization and Sprays, Chair of ICLASS 2009, and Executive Board Member of the Colorado Alliance of Bioengineering.
