Dr. Ranga Dinesh Kahanda Koralage joined Faculty of Engineering and the Environment, University of Southampton as a New Frontiers Fellow in 2013, and became a Lecturer in Energy Technologies in 2016. Prior to this appointment, he worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in School of Engineering, Cranfield University (2007-10), and Senior Research Fellow in Engineering Department, Lancaster University (2010-12). His current research is focused entirely on developing and applying fundamental theoretical and computational techniques to better understand alternative and sustainable energy vectors such as hydrogen and ammonia for future decarbonisation strategy. The ultimate goal of his research is to improve technologies for production and utilisation of hydrogen and alternative energy vectors for power generation, transportation and domestic/industrial heating applications. He has secured research funding from UKRI EPSRC, Innovate UK and Industry, all as a Principal Investigator (PI). In his research field of Energy & Flow Physics, he has an international publication profile with about 70 journal and conference publications with significant research output published in International Journal of Hydrogen Energy. He is currently working with national and international research groups at University College London (UCL), Eindhoven University of Technology, University of Magdeburg Otto-von-Guericke, Tsinghua University and The University of Sydney.
