My research interest lies in the development of advanced optical diagnostic techniques for engineering applications. More specifically, my research involves implementation of optical and spectroscopic techniques such as tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS), filtered Rayleigh scattering (FRS), Raman spectroscopy, two-color ratio pyrometry etc. for conducting quantitative measurements in high speed air flows, plasmas or/and combustion. These measurements help to develop a better understanding of the underlying physics of these applications. While my current research is interdisciplinary and applied in nature, I am also interested in studying fundamental problems in optics and photonics.
