My main research interests lie within the energy related topics as reactive and multiphase flows and fundamentals of phase change processes at normal and trans/super-critical conditions, and under wide-span time scales, from mili-to-micro/nano-seconds.
These find relevance in fields such as energy sustainability, propulsion, micro-fluids, safety and energy management. Those topics are of emerging importance in the environmental energy field due to fossil sources depletion and due to the ongoing miniaturization process of devices.
The energy and environmental field encounters inter-disciplinary challenges at every corner. One of the most intriguing fuel that I am researching is methane-hydrate, which is the most common of a wider family of gas-hydrates, found on the continental shelves and in the permafrost.
