Dr Timothy Lau

Research Associate

School of Mechanical Engineering

Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

Postdoctoral researcher with extensive experience studying and investigating highly complex fluid flows within engineering and biological systems. Strong experience with a large range of cutting edge laser diagnostic tools, including laser induced fluorescence (LIF), laser sheet drop-sizing (LSD), planar nephelometry and time-resolved tomographic particle image velocimetry (tomo-PIV).

Research interests includes:

a) Particle-laden flows, including flows utilising droplets, sprays and fibrous particles;

b) Concentrating solar thermal systems, including falling particle cloud technologies;

c) Biological fluid mechanics, including aquatic propulsion and cardiovascular flows;

d) Building heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems;

e) Laser diagnostics;

f) Image processing methods and algorithms;

g) Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
