Research Interests

Interested in developing and updating chemical kinetic models of different fuels to accurately predict combustion properties and behavior. Different software and quantum chemistry calculations are used to estimate the thermodynamic data and reactions rate rules. Combustion chemistry models are further simulated and validated against experimental data.
