  • Funding for research stays in foreign research centers.

Planned activities for this PhD position include:
1. Experimental characterization of partial- and perfectly-premixed flames of H2 and its blends with natural gas.
2. Flame stability issues: flashback and thermo-acoustic instabilities.
3. Development of advanced monitoring and control approaches based on flame sensors and AI techniques, specifically adapted to H2 combustion.
4. Design and evaluation of novel solutions for the clean, efficient and safe combustion of H2 and its blends.
5. Presentation of results at leading scientific journals and conferences.
