Personal profile

Overview

In my current role, I’m a lecturer in Aircraft and Mechanical Engineering in the School of Engineering and Computing 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 involved in teaching the following modules as part of the Mechanical and Aircraft Engineering degree programmes:

-          Principles of Aerodynamics

-          Introduction to Thermofluids

-          Design Analysis 2

-          Advanced Aerodynamics

Desired research direction

I have a keen interest in the following areas:

-          Fluid simulation for aerospace design, with a vision of future aerospace technology development.

-          Simulation of fluid flows and heat transfer in micro- and nano-scale devices.
