Fire Dynamics

 

Fire dynamics are the result of complex interaction between several physical processes, such as chemical reactions, fluid dynamics and heat transfer. The numerical forecasting of fire dynamics is extremely challenging, and searching for methodologies to significantly accelerate forecasts so that they can be used in emergency response, is one of my main research interests. 

CFD

 

Computational fluid dynamics, and their application to engineering problems is another area of interest for me. Among other topics, I have worked on shape optimisation using adjoint CFD and optimal location of fog water collectors. 

Inverse problems

An important part of my work has been related to parameter estimation and inverse modelling of dynamical systems.
