Post-Doctoral Fellow ​


Research Interests

My interests lie in studying combustion phenomena in various practical devices like burners of gas turbine engines using laser based diagnostic techniques. Specifically, employing methods like laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF), Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), Coherent anti-stokes Raman Scattering (CARS) etc., in laboratory scale burners and extracting information relevant to flame stability and pollutant formation.
