My research focuses on internal combustion engines, in-cylinder combustion and emission formation processes, fundamental experimental diagnostics and investigations, advanced and novel combustion processes (low temperature combustion, homogenous charge compression ignition, premixed compression ignition), alternative fuels (natural gas, bio-based fuels, hydrogen), aftertreatment systems and their coupling to IC engines (LNT, SCR, DOC, DPF).
