Daniel Greenblatt is a research postgraduate in the Thermofluids Division, part of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London. He joined the group in October 2018 and is working towards his PhD under the supervision of Professor Peter Lindstedt.
Daniel's research interests include alternative bio-derived fuels and their behaviour in novel combustion modes for advanced hybrid powertrains, which have the potential to greatly reduce fuel consumption and pollutant emissions. Using a combination of experimental and computational tools, the thermochemical state in these turbulent premixed combustion modes of practical relevance will be investigated. This will allow the combination of fuel and engine technologies in the design process.
Prior to joining the group, Daniel gained his Master's (MEng) in Mechanical Engineering from Imperial College London in 2018. For his Master's project, he conducted an Energy Life Cycle Assessment of the production of electrofuels in the UK.
