Research Interests

​Professor Guiberti's research interests are in reactive flows and optical diagnostics, with special emphasis on the combustion of carbon-free fuels (e.g., hydrogen and ammonia) at practically-relevant conditions, namely high pressure and turbulence. He is also interested in the development of optical diagnostics for the measurement of temperature and species concentration, including laser-induced fluorescence, Raman spectroscopy, and chemiluminescence.
