Fluid mechanics

Heat transfer

Low temperature plasma wave enhanced combustion in porous media and excess enthalpy combustion processes (these topics permit the generation of superadiabatic temperatures which can be applied to emission control, gas synthesis, and highly efficient combustion processes)

Non-equilibrium plasma processes for emission control and hydrogen generation

Fuel reforming unsteady combustion processes

Combustion synthesis of materials

Hydrogen metal hydrides processes
