Research Interests

​My current research is about the experimental and the modeling study of detonation propagation. After the study of validation cases without plasma, this project will focus on the effect of Nanosecond Repetitively Pulsed (NRP) plasmas on the detonation propagation. 


My previous research activities mostly deal with experimental and modeling kinetic studies with typical research devices (shock tube, flow reactor) directly or indirectly applied to combustion, industrial safety or biomass pyrolysis.


In addition, I did my Ph.D at IFP Energies nouvelles (Rueil-Malmaison) on “the liquid phase stability of fuel surrogates”. The main objective of my thesis was to develop and validate a methodology combining both experimental data acquisition and the development of kinetic models for liquid phase autoxidation.
