Dr Zhiwei Sun

Grant-Funded Researcher (B)

School of Mechanical Engineering

Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology

Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


Dr. Zhiwei Sun works on laser diagnostics in combustion and other challenging reacting flows. In his research, novel optical, laser-based techniques are used to visualize the key parameters in flames/flows in high spatial and temporal resolution. He also focuses on the development of unique new techniques for quantitative measurements of reacting flows that are reacting or under high radiation.

Dr. Zhiwei Sun works on experiments in thermo-fluids using advanced laser-based and optical diagnosing methods, specially with experience of developing new diagnostics techniques.
