Personal profile

Biography

Having completed PhD in Applied Mathematics at Coventry in 2001, I stayed on as a researcher in Magnetohydrodynamics group. In 2010, I moved to Mechanical and Automotive Engineering department to join the Low Carbon Vehicle Technology Project funded by Advantage West Midlands and ERDF.

After completion of the LCVTP in 2012, I continued research in aftertreatment, focusing on CFD simulations of catalyst flows. Currently I am part of a group within the Research Centre for Mobility and Transport, which deals with experimental, analytical and numerical studies of flows relevant to automotive applications and adjacent areas (marine applications, cooling flows etc). Large part of my recent work focuses on assessment of existing and development of new CFD methodologies applied to modelling of aftertreatment systems.

I am the leader of the Special Interest Group on Particulate Matter Flows in automotive and marine applications, which has won funding from UK Fluids Network supported by EPSRC (EP/N032861/1), and a supervisor for several PhD projects, including experimental and modelling studies of aftertreatment systems for turbocharged applications, and Particulate Filtration flows.

Area of Expertise:

  • Computational and experimental Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer
  • Automotive emissions aftertreatment
  • Magnetohydrodynamics in strong magnetic fields

Research Interests

Computational and experimental fluid dynamics; automotive emissions aftertreatment; Magnetohydrodynamics; 

Vision Statement

Our research group's work is based around applying our Thermofluids expertise to a range of applications such as automotive aftertreatment, aerodynamics, cooling systems etc. Within the relatively young Research Centre for Mobility and Transport, I would like to establish our research group as a nationally and internationally recognised research unit with strong links with industry and other academic institutions. I would like to capitalise on our successful work on particullate matter filtration, and through the newly formed Special Interest Group in Particulate Matter Filtration Flows in Automotive and Marine Applications to create a vibrant network of researchers and industry representatives working towards the cleaner environment.
