Personal profile


Lecturer in Aircraft Engineering and Mechanical Engineering in the School of Computing, Engineering and Physical Sciences at UWS.

Area of academic expertise - outline

My expertise lies in the discipline of fluid dynamics, particularly on numerical modelling of rarefied and non-equilibrium fluid flows.

Current teaching activities and interests

I am currently delivering the following modules as part of the BEng/MEng Aircraft Engineering and BEng/MEng Mechanical Engineering degree programmes:

  • Aircraft Flight Studies (Level 7)
  • Principles of Aerodynamics (Level 8)
  • Thermofluids for Aircraft Engineers (Level 8)
  • Analysis and Simulation 1 - CFD (Level 9)
  • Advanced Aerodynamics (Level 10)
  • Group Project for MEng (Level 11)

Desired research direction

My research interests are based on numerical modelling of fluid behaviour in the following areas:

  • Rarefied gas flows in microscale geometries.
  • High-speed, high-altitude gas flows for aerospace design.
  • Multiphase flows. 

Expertise related to UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. This person’s work contributes towards the following SDG(s):
