Alternative Fuels: Combustion characteristics of potential alternative fuels including hydrogen, dimethyl ether, syngas and bio-fuels; Modeling of fuel blends to improve safety, fuel energy and emission efficiency.

Energetic Materials: Condensed phase energetic materials modeling; Spectroscopy analysis.

Numerical Methods: CFD, High-order finite volume numerical schemes; Implicit Large Eddy Simulations (ILES); Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR); Adaptive and Overlapping Grid Method; Reduced chemical kinetics strategy.

Nonlinear Dynamics: Nonlinear dynamics and chaos in reactive flow phenomena; Logistic equation modeling.

Development of advanced propulsion system: Pulsed detonation engines; micro-combustion thruster

Shock Waves Phenomena: Blast wave theory; Shock interactions; Blast injury.

Surface Waves and Vortex Dynamics: water waves; SPH; Pattern formation.

Wind Energy: Turbulent flow field behind scaled wind turbine; Blades design.
