Research interests

My main research activity focuses on the use of optimization and uncertainty quantification methods in kinetic modelling of mechanisms for the combustion of e-fuels. Particular attention is being given to non-conventional combustion regimes, such as MILD, and to the development of tools for the optimization of existing models using large number of kinetic parameters and experimental observations.
