Research Interests

My research interests are in:

  • Premixed combustion for low emission techniques
  • Dynamics of spherical and swirling flames
  • Combustion instabilities (flame intrinsic instability and thermoacoustic instability)
  • Acoustic wave, entropy wave, and vorticity wave
  • Optical diagnostics (chemiluminescence, PIV, PLIF, TDLAS, etc.)
