Research interests

My research interests are multidisciplinary but mainly focused on renewable energy, biofuel conversions and thermodynamics. At present, I’m working on “conversion of raw biomass to high efficiency bio fuels with concentrated solar power (CSP) plant” which involve computational fluid dynamic and thermodynamics modeling with detailed study of chemical reaction inside reactor to understand breakdown of compounds under various thermal, physical, and design variations. On the other hand, my study is also focused on modeling of CSP plant with free failing solid particles receiver to harvest, convert and store that energy for sustainable and green pyrolysis process.
