Research Interests

My interesting domains are mainly relative to Electromagnetic Process of Materials (EPM is a multidiscipline which mainly studies electromagnetic field technology interacting with fluid flow, heat and mass transfer, solidification etc.) and Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD is concerned with the flow of electrically conducting fluids in the presence of magnetic fields).
