Sili (Selina) Deng, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering


Sili’s research focuses on the combustion characteristics and chemistry of petroleum  and alternative fuels including biofuels, which constitute many of the critical issues related to energy and the climate. Experimental investigation is combined with numerical simulation to obtain fuel characteristics considering the complicated coupling process of chemistry and transport. It provides insights for surrogate fuel design, combustion process optimization and pollutant control.
