My research focuses on fundamentally understanding "Heat and Mass Transport in Particle-Laden Flows" under conditions of relevance to concentrating solar thermal energy.

Supervisors: Professor Graham ’Gus’ Nathan (Principal),  Dr Timothy Lau  and  Dr Zhiwei Sun.

Industry project: US DoE Gen 3 Particle Pilot Plant (G3P3), providing high-accuracy systematic lab-scale experimental data for validating analytical and computational models in the development of commercially up-scaled plants.

Laser technique: simultaneously measuring both particle- and fluid-phase velocities in particle-laden flows by two-color optical phase discrimination.

Activities: multiple research conferences and industry-engaged activities, e.g., Selected speaker at the Gordon Research Conference on Laser Diagnostics (2021), Presenter at the 22nd Australasian Fluid Mechanics Conference (2020) and the 27th SolarPACES Conference (2021), as well as Mentee in Industry Mentoring Network in STEM (IMNIS, 2020-2021).
