About Me

I am currently a postdoc researcher at the thermal engineering group. My work over the past several years has built on diverse expertise and broad knowledge within the Sustainable Energy Applications and thermal enhancement technology. I finished my PhD in 2015 at University of Luxembourg. During my PhD, I have studied the thermodynamic behavior of biomass conversion. For this reason, I have developed a multi-physics and multi-scale model, able to give detailed information about the phenomena occurring in biomass conversion. In 2016, I moved to University of Twente continuing my research on the combustion of pyrolysis oil. After that in 2017, I worked as a flow and thermal specialist in Demcon-bunova.
