Research Interests

My research interests cover residual oils combustion and upgrade. I am working on the development of a pyrolysis lumped mechanism for residual oils. Other research activities involve the desulfurization process for residual oils, in particular regarding the Oxidative Desulfurization process (ODS) to match new environmental limitations about the sulfur threshold in maritime fuels.
