My research is primarily related to extending our understanding of "mild" combustion, a particular combustion regime which enables improvements in fuel flexibility and emissions reductions in practical devices. In particular, I am investigating changes in the mild combustion regime at elevated pressures, via both experimental methods and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). As part of a Future Fuels CRC funded project, my research also involves assessing the feasibility of improving the safety and performance of hydrogen flames, through the addition of liquid fuels.
