Research Interests

​The major research interest is in RANS and LES study on combustion phenomena with open source software for gaseous fuels (e.g. methane and propane), light liquid fuels (e.g. methanol) and heavy fuel oil. Another research interest is in kinetic analysis of materials with the help of thermal analysis techniques (TG, DSC, etc.). For example, using a lumped strategy to model the combustion process of heavy fuel oil.
