Research Interests

Experimental studies on laminar and turbulent burning velocities of primary, binary and tertiary liquid fuels under engine-like conditions. Also part of my research is related to the electric field assisted combustion and the mutual interaction between electric field and flame dynamics. This research is directed toward the applications to internal combustion engines, gas turbines, burners, rocket propulsion, and fire and explosion safety.
