Research Interests

​My interests are among developing principled and practical algorithms of important machine learning paradigms in order to create robust design as well as optimization for fuels, engines, and their related simulation tools. Specifically for combustion chemistry, this can be achieved via deep learning, clustering, probabilistic modelling, pattern recognition, parallel processing, and data augmentation.
