Research and Scholarship

I consider research inextricably linked to a successful academic career and as such I am active in both scientific and pedagogic research. As an academic member of staff who leads Energy, Emissions and the Environment Research Group I am involved in teaching and research in the broad area of Energy systems with emphasis on Thermo—fluids systems. Most of my teaching is within Mechanical and Automotive Engineering subject area. I have contributed immensely to develop research activity, in the area of thermo-fluid applications as applied to different energy systems. The specific research topics that are within scope of my research are listed below.

  • Design, development and performance evaluation of fluid and thermal systems such as radiators, heat exchangers, piping systems, valves etc.
  • Flow diagnostics, flow measurement and instrumentation, multiphase flows
  • Computational fluid dynamics, analytical and experimental modeling of difficult flow systems,  rheology, fuel development, toxicity evaluation of fuels, emission modeling
  • Aerodynamics: vehicle aero dynamics, boundary layer flow, turbulence, design and development of aerodynamic interventions for vehicle systems, modeling of vehicle stability and systems development for improving vehicle stability
  • Design and development of e-learning systems for energy, emission and the environment education
  • Energy saving devices, energy generating devices, energy storage devices, emissions: prediction, monitoring and control.
