Research Interests

During the internship at KAUST I have been working on low temperature oxidation of diethyl ether using jet stirred reactor. The analytical devices used for detection and quantification of species include time-of-flight molecular beam mass spectrometry, and GCMS. The experimental data can be applied for deeper understanding of combustion reaction models.​
