Laboratory Introduction

Our research interests lie in the areas of mathematical modelling of physical phenomena present in chemical, environmental and biological systems. Through the translation of mathematical models into computer code and computational simulation, We aim to predict the system behaviours and ultimately optimise the system to achieve specific objectives, e.g., minimising cost/environmental impact for a chemical plant and minimising the risk of side effects for medical treatments. In the general workflow of my research, fundamental theories and experimental/clinical findings serve to build a computational model via two main methodologies, “Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)” and “Process Systems Engineering (PSE)”. CFD-based modelling approaches are particularly beneficial when fluid flow and mass transfer phenomena in a complex domain need to be studied, e.g., rotating packed bed and stent-grafts. Also, PSE-based approaches have been mostly utilised for developing a tractable predictive model for an overall performance and treatment outcome. Both CFD and process models can be used for optimisation for device/plant design and operating conditions. This workflow can be applied for various chemical/environmental and systems biomedical, including but not limited to:
