    Research Interests

    My primary research and scholarly interests is on fundamental and applied industrial systems involving Fluid flow and Heat transfer.  My key research experience covers the following multidisciplinary areas:

    • Multiphase Transport and Flow Assurance -experiment and CFD modelling (Porous media flow; Enhanced oil recovery (water flooding, Gas injection, residual Oil saturation reduction and Thermal recovery) and Sand transport through pipelines)
    • FEA modelling of advanced materials for extreme environment applications (failure/damage prediction and reliability assessment of pipelines and pressure vessels).
    • Renewable energy systems modelling (Design, performance prediction and optimization)
    • Wind Turbine/ Tidal Turbine/ Hydro Turbine
    • Solar heating and geothermal energy systems (heat exchangers, built environments and heating systems applications)

    Expertise related to UN Sustainable Development Goals

    In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. This person’s work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

    • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
