He designed various automotive heat exchangers (Condenser, Gas-cooler, Evaporator, Radiator, Transmission oil cooler, Coax tube heat exchanger, Glycol-refrigerant heater, PTC heater, Secondary gas-cooler, 3Fluid heat exchanger, etc). He introduced diverse inventions and improvements in the area of automotive heat exchanger design and initiated several new heat exchanger concepts (3 Fluid air/R744/glycol heat exchanger, Condensate sprayed gas-cooler, etc). He is the author of around 20 international patents in the area of R744 heat exchangers and automotive heat exchangers. He managed to improve radically air side heat transfer of automotive heat exchangers by introducing various inventive features (designing advanced louver fin, diminishing condensed water retention at evaporators air side, re-packaging and coupling automotive heat exchangers for better air side heat transfer efficiency, etc). He developed internal heat-loss protection methodology for high inner fluid temperature change air cooled heat exchangers.

He has thorough theoretical knowledge and practical expertise in steady and transient heat transfer. His excellent understanding of the processes and mathematical modeling capabilities, together with innovative and creative approach has enabled him to solve and improve various heat transfer problems in the areas of convective heat transfer, heat transfer resistances, phase change heat transfer, refrigeration thermodynamics, transient heat and mass conduction, surface condensation, humid air and drying processes, heat transfer augmentation, air side heat transfer surface improvement, wet surface heat transfer, etc.
