Background and activities
Professor in Thermodynamics and Combustion since 2009
Area of Work:
- Theoretical and experimental research within the field of combustion/gasification and alternative fuels (bio, hydrogen).
- Modeling of gasification processes of solid biofuels (reactive multiphase flows) for biofuel production.
- Investigation of particle formation in turbulent reacting flows using direct numerical simulations, including dynamic chemical models for combustion in engines and turbines. In collaboration with Queen Mary University of London.
- Studies of characteristics of surrogate fuels including modelling for modern low emitting fuels. In collaboration with School of Engineering and Material Science, Queen Mary University of London og Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, University of Cambridge.
- Atmospheric dispersion modelling from point sources typical of industrial and marine sources. Research includes development of detailed chemical models for arctic conditions. In collaboration with University of Tromsø and Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge.
