Personal profile

Overview

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:

  • Technical Communication in Engineering (Level 7)
  • Aircraft Flight Studies (Level 7)
  • Principles of Aerodynamics (Level 8)
  • Thermofluids for Aircraft Engineers (Level 8)
  • Advanced Aerodynamics (Level 10)
  • Analysis and Simulation 2 (Level 10)

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.
  • Gas turbine technologies.
