Main project: Fuel resilient cogeneration system based on HCCI engines
Funding: FRIA
Supervisor(s): Hervé Jeanmart


is pursuing a PhD thesis on the combustion of the simple fuels that are hydrogen, ammonia, methane and methanol, or mixing thereof. His work focuses on HCCI engines operated in CHP mode and able to switch from one fuel to another while ensuring maximum efficiency and very low pollution. This project takes place in the framework of renewable-electricity storage into clean-fuels made from water, air and carbon dioxide capture. He is doing a joint PhD between UCL and VUB.
