Research Interests

My research interests are in plasma processes for air pollution control including NOx, SO2, odorous gas, and particulate matters (PM10 and PM2.5) using corona discharge and dielectric barrier discharge to apply electrostatic precipitator and ozone generation, and in process for waste gasification and biogas (CH4+CO2) reforming using arc discharge which provides high enthalpy and fast reaction rate in the plasma region.
