About

In the field of aeronautical engineering, I work on fluid dynamics, especially the aerodynamics and structures of aeroplanes. My research focuses on both gas and liquid flows at different scales, from the macroscopic (visible to the naked eye) to microscopic and beyond to nanoscopic scales.

I have expertise in non-equilibrium/rarefied gas dynamics, heat and mass transfer, droplet evaporation and condensation, two-phase flows in porous media, and natural convection of Newtonian/non-Newtonian fluids. My computational approaches include molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, kinetic theory modelling, lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) and conventional computational fluid dynamics (CFD).

We welcome visiting researchers and accept PhD students to join our Thermofluids Group at the University of Derby.
