Research Interests

The major strategic goals of my research is to improve the efficiency and reduce emissions from combustion engines. My research focus on Diesel and Gasoline Engine combustion (HCCI/PPC/GCI-gasoline compression ignition) optical diagnostics; Experimental study the effects of fuel properties and control strategies on combustion and emissions of engines; Fuel surrogates and alternative fuels, mainly focus on heavy naphtha and light naphtha; Chemical kinetics and reaction mechanisms and their applications in advanced engine combustion simulations; Combustion simulation and optimization with both conventional and renewable fuels; Numerical study of the soot particle precursors and soot particle formation processes
