Antonio García is an Associate Professor in the Department of thermal and reciprocating Engines at the Universitat Politècnica de Valencia where develops his teaching responsibilities in the frame of combustion fundamentals.
During the last years, his research activities have been focused on Low Temperature Combustion topics, in particular, an extensive experience on the use of high-efficiency premixed combustion strategy using two-fuels with different auto-ignition characteristics in CI engines has led to the publication of more than 50 peer-reviewed articles being an active member in SAE.
He received his M.S. and PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the Universitat Politècnica de València. Professor Garcia has been visiting professor at the Combustion Engines division at Lund University as well as visiting researcher at RWTH Aachen University where he has developed relevant works on the implementation of advanced combustion systems on CI engines.
