My research focuses on the experimental sensitivity analysis and control of unstable thermoacoustic systems. Work is conducted in parallel to adjoint-based sensitivity analysis to enhance the development of optimal control strategies for the suppression of dangerous thermoacoustic oscillations. The research is applied in an industrial context to combustion systems such as solid rocket engines and gas-turbine engines.
