Research Interest

My research interest and background is in the field of common rail diesel fuel injection rate measurements and fuel injection strategies. Also, I am interested in diesel particulate matter characterization, which is produced by combustion in diesel ICE. Nowadays, I am very interested in new fuel injection pathways and strategies (multiple injector engine), and fuel and combustion concepts flexibility, in order to increase engine efficiency and reduce pollutant emissions.
