Areas of Research

  • Computational Fluid Dynamics modelling of Transport in Fuel Cells:
    • Liquid Water Transport in Porous Media
    • Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells (PEMFC)
    • Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC)
  • Energy from Salinity Differences (Blue Energy)
  • Membrane Separation / Water Purification
  • Application of CFD to Design


I am currently looking for talented students to work in the areas of :

  • Transport Modelling of PEM Fuel Cells
  • Transport Modelling of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

In support of these positions, students will also be considered with interests in:

  • Transport and Reaction in Porous Media
  • Large-Scale Parallel Computing
  • Scientific Visualization (possibly incorporating virtual reality and co-processing)

In addition to the above applications, I am keenly interested in the application of CFD to design. Please contact me if you know of a design area that would benefit from the correct application of CFD.

For more information, please contact me.
