Research interests

  • Multiphase fluid mechanics encompassing whole particle DNS, using immersed boundary methods, point particle DNS, experimental measurement and the development of Eulerian models for multiphase flow.
  • Powder systems such as pharmaceutical dry powder inhalers. Optimization of the inhaler design and the understanding the impact of the dose formulation and ambient conditions, such as humidity and operation.
  • The fluid mechanics of single and multiphase fluids containing electric charge, such as charge injection atomizers for fuel oils, RF plasma systems and PEM Fuel cells.
  • Liquid atomization systems from aerosol cans to fuel injectors for internal combustion engines.
