Profile

I am currently a PhD student sponsored by a joint scholarship of China Scholarship Council and University of Leeds (CSC202008350141), who is an experimentalist in the Institute of Thermofluids at the Univerisity of Leeds focusing on fundamental combustion research. 

My interests include Darrieus–Landau and thermo-diffusive instabilities, self acceleration phenomenon, characterization of carbon-free fuel combustion using advanced laser diagnostics (PIV, 3D swinging laser sheet technique).

Research interests

Laminar and turbulent burning velocity measurements
