The main research area which Zhiyi focuses on is related to the numerical simulation of combustion process, and specifically aims at Sub-grid models for LES simulation of non-conventional combustion regimes. The research activities she is going to conduct are at first, making a combustion-LES tool implementing the implicit LES, EDC and PaSR paradigms available using the OpenFOAM code. Second, the impact of detailed and reduced chemistry will be also assessed. And in the end, a validation process by using data from literature or experiments will be included. The goal is to have an insight investigation on the role of sub-grid models for MILD combustion systems. Zhiyi got her Bachelor degree at Sun Yat-sen University in China and her Master degree at the University of Stuttgart in Germany. She is a member of Early Staged Researcher of Marie-Curie CLEAN GAS program.
