Apply for research position

I am a Lecturer at the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and I have a B.E. and Ph.D. in engineering. I am an active researcher and I have strong expertise in developing advanced optical diagnostic tools for the detailed analysis of different practical combustion systems. I have extensive experience in collaborating with both Australian and international partners on different industrial and end-user focused research. 

My research team is part of the very active UNSW Engine Research Group, and I work closely with A. Prof. Shawn Kook and Prof Evatt Hawkes, who are experts in experimental engine research and numerical simultation.

Research Interests

  • Renewable energy
  • Combustion
  • Soot formation and destruction
  • Laser diagnostics
  • Alternative fuels / biofuels
  • Gas turbines / Engines

I have research positions available for Masters and PhD students, focusing on jet-wall interaction and high temperature and pressure combustion diagnostics (see research activities). These positions are available for international students with GPA, WAM higher than 3.2/4.0, or WAM >75 for Australian residents. Successful students will be joining a dynamic research group, consisting of 30+ members,  PhD students, 4 post-docs and 3 academics Prof. Evatt Hawkes, A. Prof. Shawn Kook, and I. The environment is very friendly and there is a wealth of experience to drawn upon in the group. Students are also encouraged to attend conferences nationally and internationally and collaborate with our research partners in different parts of the world. 

Please contact me for an obligation free meeting and tour of the lab.

Research Activities

Description

The group's research activities involve detailed investigations in the fields of thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, combustion, heat and mass transfer. The research activities include the development of research methodologies for experimentation and analysis of well-controlled realistic conditions that are directly relevant to practical combustion systems such as engines, gas turbines and furnaces. The key theme of the group's research is to provide comprehensive understandings of problems relating to energy conversion and reacting flows through the…
