Research Activities

Luc research uses numerical simulation and data driven approaches (machine learning) to address problems in engineering. The first and foremost studied problems are reacting flows, combustion and flame. Understanding the very details of the physics to answer scientific questions with computer simulation are the main objectives. Luc has developed physical modelling (set of equations) used in software specialized in virtual prototyping of environmentally friendly systems for energy production, transportation and transformation industries.

Current projects include gas purification and fluid-mechanics in line with the next generation of carbon-neutral fuels.
