My research is focused on innovative solutions to the challenges associated with transitioning away from fossil fuels and into hydrogen as an alternative fuel for high temperature combustion. Specifically I'm investigating how the negative consequences of hydrogen blending such as reduced flame visibility and radiant heat transfer can be mitigated with modifications to fuel composition, burner design and other operating conditions. The overall goal of my project is to help de-risk a move to hydrogen by industry.
