Personal profile

Personal Statement

I joined the University of Strathclyde in 2007 and I’m currently a Reader in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering. I am committed teaching in thermodynamics, heat transfer, energy system management, marine pipeline and computational fluid dynamics.   

I have more than 25 years of research experience in the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) field with extensive experience ranging from numerical simulation of aerodynamic compressible flow to bio-mimetic and ocean renewable energy incompressible flow. My main research interests lie in the application of CFD for flow analysis of bio-inspired studies and ocean renewable energy. Some of my main research themes include the physical phenomena associated with a flapping wing and swimming fish with their applications in bioinspired under-water robots; flapping-based tidal energy device;  the offshore renewable energy devices such as tidal turbine, the fixed and floating wind turbine; wave energy converter and offshore fluid-structure interaction such as Vortex Induced Vibration.

In addition to my extensive research activities, I am currently an ITTC Ocean Engineering Committee member, Associated Editor of OMAE Journal, Editorial Board member of Ocean Engineering; a senior member of AIAA, member of OMAE.
