Research Interests

My research interest is in developing sustainable energy technologies with a negative environmental impact. My research scope of work includes developing reduced chemical kinetic models to aid computational fluid dynamic simulations in real engines. I have also worked on utilizing machine learning techniques to predict different behaviour of engine combustion. Currently, I am looking forward to a novel reactor technology in the production of renewable hydrogen production with the ultimate goal on negative carbon footprint.
