Axel Coussement (ULB) has a PhD Degree from the ULB and CentraleSupelec (France), he was a research fellow at the IFP-EN in Paris, focusing on HCCI engine control and then at CentraleSupelec, developing combustion models for rocket engines in a collaborative research project with ESA, CNES and JAXA.

He is now a full time Professor at the ULB and invited professor at the IFP-School and the CentraleSupelec.

His current research activities focus on:

– Experimental and numerical characterisation of new energy vectors in piston engine, including HCCI.

– Optical diagnostics; PIV, LIF, LII in semi-industrial burners

– DNS driven turbulent combustion modelling for RANS and LES

– Characterisation of industrial furnaces.
