Huw collected his MENG degree from Durham University in 2016. Since joining the group, he has worked on numerical modelling and simulation of flow control using DBD plasma actuators in collaboration with ONERA in France.
Yang received his BSc and MSc degrees from Tianjin University and Imperial College, respectively. Since joining the group in 2016, he has worked on the effect of thermal conditions and inflow turbulence intensity on the wake recovery behind wind turbines with numerical simulations.
Mahmud received his MENG degree from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia with the Best Student Award based on excellent academic achievements including publishing several reviewed papers on top journals. He was a lecturer in Nigerian Defence Academy before joining the group in 2019. He has interest in heat transfer enhancement of nanaofluid, aerodynamics and Renewable energy.
Basem received his MENG degree in Sustainable Energy systems from the University of Southampton in 2019 and then joined the group in Jan, 2020. His PhD research focuses on data-based reduced order modelling of wind flow aiming at reducing the cost of power by offshore wind farms.
Lei obtained his BSc and MSc degrees from Southwest Jiaotong University. He joined the group in 2019 under the co-supervision of Prof. Choi and Dr. Mao and work on wind tunnel measurements of vortex flow and transient dynamics.
Tobias received his BSc in Physics with Theoretical Physics and MSc in Mathematical Medicine and Biology from the University of Nottingham in 2018/19, and joined the group in 2020. His research focuses on reduced order modelling. As a passionate cyclist, he hopes his PhD will also provide insight into how he can become more aero whilst cycling.
Josh obtained his MPhys in Physics from the University of Leicester in 2020, receiving both the College Prize and Stewardson Essay Award, and joined the group in October 2020. His research focuses on simulating the aeroacoustic properties of distributed electric propulsion configurations as part of the SilentProp project. His passion for numerical simulation stems from the ability to replicate complex real-life situations using basic computer programs.
Zhihua got his BSc and MSc from Northwestern Polytechnical University in 2017 and 2020, respectively, before joining the group. He has been an exchanging student at TU Braunschweig. He has developed research interests in combined cycle engine design.
The lab is based at the University of Nottingham in the UK. We develop novel algorithms for reduced order modelling and high-fidelity numerical simulations to bridge fundamental fluid mechanics and its engineering applications. Specifically we explore fluid physics (e.g. hydrodynamics stability, bypass transition, travelling waves) and apply them to aeronautics and wind energy engineering. We are also fascinated with icing and anti-icing/de-icing techniques.
