I gained a MSc. in Turbulent Combustion Modelling at Siemens Turbomachinery Lincoln (UK). Modelling work was performed on the noise prediction of a lean premixed turbulent flame.
Subsequently I gained a PhD. in Sustainable Energy Technology at the University of Twente. The research focused on experimental and theoretical work on the process of supercritical gasification of wet biomass, involving high pressure experiments, thermodynamic modelling and the CFD design of a heat exchanger.
After my time at university, I worked in several roles in industry, mainly focusing on Research and Development and product development tasks.
Products varying from radial compressors, gas turbines but also several project in the semiconductor industry.
Currently I’m working as a lecturer/researcher within the Engineering Fluid Dynamics group.
My research interests include:
- Rotating flow machines
- Computational Fluid Dynamics Algorithms and Design
- Renewable processes and transition to the future technologies
