  • Doctor of Philosophy, University of New South  Wale, UNSW Sydney  (2014)
  • Master of Engineering ,University of New South Wale, UNSW Sydney (2010)
UNSW Canberra
School of Eng & Tech

I am a Senior Lecturer and leader of Adaptive Design for Resilient Infrastructure research group at School of Engineering and Technology, UNSW Canberra. My research is interdisciplinary and broadly focused on development of robust, scalable, and adaptive solution techniques for computational fluid dynamics, error estimation, parallel computation and design under uncertainty.  

My primary research field is in algorithmic development for computational fluid dynamics, specifically in the use of code coupling for coupled fluid flow, heat transfer and stress analysis, mesh adaptation, and uncertainty quantification.

As for experimental research, I established and lead Pyrometric Laboratory at UNSW with several dedicated flame behaviour testing equipment to unravel the fundamental behaviour of materials,products and systems exposed to direct and indirect flame and radiative heat fluxes.

I have also designed and built a modular subsonic wind tunnel for visualisation of flame propagation in Wildland Urban Interface Scenarios at UNSW.  

My research also focuses on the development of accurate physical and CFD models to advance new energy technologies for renewable fuels such as hydrogen and biomass.
