Research Interests

​My research interest is experimental combustion, including spray and single droplet combustion. As energy requirement through parts of the world are met through combustion of heavy fuel oil and emissions during this process still remain a concern, our recent work focus on the combustion characteristics of heavy fuel oil, through spray combustion in a swirl burner and free falling single droplet combustion.
