Research Interests

My research interest is to investigate the sensitivity of the soot formation rate to various chemical pathways for large polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. The process involves a systematic reduction of the reaction mechanisms for efficient flame simulations, description of soot aerosol model based on statistical approaches, and high fidelity simulations of laminar and turbulent flames.
