I am a member of the flow noise group at UNSW and currently doing my Ph.D. in investigating the interaction of complex turbulent inflow with airfoil sections. My research interests include:

  • Turbulent flows
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • Experimental fluid dynamics (PIV)
  • Unsteady Aerodynamics
