Research Interests

My research interest focuses on computational fluid dynamic modeling of Hydrogen (H2), using CONVERGE Science Simulation Software. The purpose of the research is to optimize the H2 engine design by eliminating the knocking issue and NOx emissions and enhancing the output power. Our work is associated with an experimental team to ensure high-quality and efficient outcomes.
