Van Thuan Hoang received his Master's degree from the University of Adelaide in 2019. After graduation, he received an Adelaide Graduate Research Scholarship to support his Ph.D. program at the University of Adelaide in 2021. He currently works as a Ph.D. student on the project of permeable surfaces for drag reduction under the supervision of Professor Maziar Arjomandi. His research focuses on turbulent boundary layer controls.

My research focuses on fluid dynamics, specifically turbulent boundary layers. It aims to deepen our understanding of turbulence to create more sustainable engineering solutions. Controlling turbulent boundary layers, for instance, can decrease skin friction drag in various engineering applications like aircraft, ships, cars, and pipelines, thereby improving their efficiency.

  • Aerodynamics (turbulent boundary layers, turbulent boundary layer control, turbulent drag reduction)
  • Renewable energy (wind turbines)
