My areas of expertise are Bioengineering, Fluid Mechanics, Heat and Mass Transfer and Thermodynamics within a wide range of applications including combustion systems, plasma sources, refrigeration systems, electrospraying, physoloical modelling, biomedical device R&D and forensics applications. I have researched fluid flow, mixing and heat transfer in gas burner systems, agricultural sprays and heat exchangers; modelled heat transfer and energy consumption in electrical floor heating and aquatic systems; vacuum plasma source design for mass spectrometry; liquid atomization, droplet formation and flight for forensic and healthcare applications.
Some of my current research interests are in:
- mechanobiology, biomechanics and mitigation of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) in contact sport players;
- Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer of vapour deposition processes and Phase Change Materials (PCMs) for thermal management of electronic equipment;
- bloodstain pattern formation simulation and reconstruction in Augmented Reality (AR) for virtual crime scene analysis.
