Research Interests

​My research focus here is the development of diagnostic (Laser/optical) techniques for combustion engines operating under advance combustion strategies such as PCCI or HCCI. Thus, acquiring both qualitative and quantitative insight to various in-cylinder combustion related phenomena.
