His research interest is object-oriented modeling of low-grade ORC systems for WHR and CCHP applications. He is interested in testing and modeling heat exchangers, volumetric expanders, and innovative expanders to be used in low-temperature electricity production systems.At present he collaborates within the context of several European projects namely Innova micro solar, BLAZE, and GICO.
