I am a Senior Lecturer and researcher at School of Engineering and Technology, UNSW Canberra.
I work on climate-resilient building design including design for extreme environment. My research is interdisciplinary and broadly centered on development of robust, scalable, and adaptive solution techniques for assessing vulnerability and resilience of infrastructure to natural and man-made disasters.
In my research on creating strong and safe communities, I investigate several important topics, including:
I established “Pyrometric Lab” at UNSW with several dedicated flame behaviour testing equipment to unravel the fundamental behaviour of materials exposed to direct and indirect flame and radiative heat transfer. I have also designed and built a modular subsonic combustion wind tunnel for convective heat flow measurement and visualisation at UNSW.
My teams' numerical modeling endeavor is to pursue applied research to advance the state of the art in physics-based simulation on high-performance computing platforms, and to maintain state-of-the-art computational capabilities that can readily be applied to engineering problems of interest in our areas of focus.
