Research Interests

​I am working in the field of combustion, currently working on understanding the quenching parameter of flame for different fuel and different equivalence ratio. Earlier I was working in the field of SCRAMJET combustion in that I was developing the experimental system to study supersonic combustion environment. Laser diagnostic tools such as PIV and PLIF was used in my earlier work, now I am planning to include other diagnostics tools like raman scattering in my current project.
