I am interested in the numerical modelling of turbulent and buoyant flows. I have studied the effect that such fluid flows have on the local environment of large or small scale devices for industrial and domestic applications. Topical application of the modelling approaches developed and used were based in automotive industry, food & agricultural industries, nuclear reactor safety and wastewater treatment.

In particular, I have modelled a variety of multiphase flows (gas-liquid, solid-liquid, gas-liquid-solid) along with heterogeneous chemical and biochemical reactions. I have also modelled thermal convection driven by internal heat sources, temperature differences in tumble dryer heaters and radiative heat transfer and humidity in greenhouses.
