Research Interests

Over the last ten years, my research has focused on evaluating performance, gaseous emissions, and particulate emissions of internal combustion engines under various engine operating conditions. Furthermore, I has a wide experience in emission measurements using Horiba and DMS for both GDI and diesel engines. With over 7 years of experience as an optical engineering researcher, I am adept in particle image velocimetry (PIV) application, planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF), laser-induced incandescence (LII), phase Doppler particle analyzer (PDPA), high speed imaging, and Schlieren photography results. My current research examines the effects of alternative biofuels on the performance and emissions of gasoline and diesel engines. Furthermore, I have a track record in ICE and clean combustion research, having published numerous journal papers in this field.
