"A Spatio-temporal approach for daily burned area mapping at 250 m from MODIS data of Kansas Flint Hill region" with Zifei Liu ( Under Review )
Work in Progress
"Identification of meteorological factors affecting the timing of prescribed burning in the Flint Hills through regression modeling using machine learning techniques"
"Regression models to simulate O3 contributions from prescribed burning in the Flint Hills using long term daily O3 and daily burned-area data with random forest algorithms"
Research Assistant, Kansas State University, Spring 2019 – Present
Conducting research on developing a decision tool to assist management of prescribed fires in the Flint Hills region in order to reduce smoke impact on ambient ozone. The research entails retrieval of daily burned-area data from combined satellite data, identification of key management factors that affect the timing of prescribed rangeland burning through survey among land managers and modeling of daily O3 under impact of prescribed burning with input from daily burned-area data.
Research Assistant, University of Stuttgart, Institute of Combustion and Power Plant Technology, Germany, Fall 2015 to Spring 2016
The research focuses on “Modelling of Flow Resistance and Heat Transfer for Heated pipe flow with CO2 at Supercritical Pressure using Simple Heat Transfer method". Thermo-dynamic cycles for energy conversion were developed with carbon dioxide (CO2) at supercritical pressure. Analytical methods were implemented in MATLAB in which the fluid properties are imported from a REFPROP. Comparisons were done with experiments from literature as well as in-house DNS computations.
Research Assistant, University of Stuttgart, Institute of Combustion and Power Plant Technology, Germany, March 2015 to October 2015
Conducted extensive research on “Assessment of Air Quality in an African Metropolis, Lagos Metropolitan Area in Nigeria, with focus on Ambient Air Quality". The research project focused on literature review of the Air quality situation in Nigeria. The most important emission sources were investigated and climatic conditions influencing the dispersion of pollutants are discussed. The available data are assessed and proposal made for future air pollution monitoring in the region.
Research Assistant, University of Stuttgart, Institute of Combustion and Power Plant Technology, Germany, October 2014 to March 2015
Conducted research on the design of Thermal and Biological Waste Treatment Plant with the aims to design procedure for dimensioning of the most important thermal and biological treatment processes according to the environmental policy standards and regulations.
Research Assistant, University of Stuttgart, Institute of Combustion and Power Plant Technology, Germany, March 2014 to October 2014
The research examined and assessed cement production processes and emission reduction techniques : Case Study of Heildelbergcement Ag, Zementwerk Schelklingen, Germany. Major pollutants emitted from cement industries were researched and up-to-date emission reduction techniques that could be applied for the optimization of the cement production with low emissions were examined.
Research Assistant, University of Stuttgart, Institute of Combustion and Power Plant Technology, Germany, October 2013 to March 2014
I measured major air pollutants and contaminants in ambient air in San Luis Potosi, Mexico . The measurement plan highlights on the air contaminants that have important effects on human health: Particulate Matter (PM 10), Heavy metal composition (precisely Mercury, Hg), Sulphur Dioxide (SO2), Carbon
Monoxide (CO), and Nitrogen Oxides (NOx). Report on planning, quality control, quality assurance and future measurements plan was written
