His expertise is in computational fluid dynamics (CFD), fluid mechanics (particularly compressible flows), and micro/nanoscale processes at fluid-solid interfaces. He has been active in both fundamental and applied research across Engineering and Applied Physics, including Aerospace, Mechanical, Nuclear (Defence and Fusion), and Oil and Gas Applications. His work has directly influenced areas as diverse as improved understanding of complex aerodynamic and gas dynamic flows, turbulent mixing in inertial confinement fusion, and novel gas filtration nanotechnologies using carbon nanotubes. He has received: 1) The William Penney Fellowship Award (twice in 2008 and 2011) by the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE Plc) in recognition of his contributions to compressible fluid dynamics. 2) The Innovator of the Year Award (2014) by the Innovation Institute for a new generation carbon capture technology that uses carbon nanotubes for filtering out carbon dioxide and other gases at low or zero energy cost. This platform technology has the potential to be used across a wide range of applications in the power generation, automotive, aerospace, chemical, marine and built environment sectors. 3) The Technical Achievement Award at the International Conference on Mathematical Problems in Engineering, Aerospace and Sciences. To date, he has co-authored two books in the field of computational fluid dynamics and has published 161 journal and 238 conference papers/book chapters in the above technical areas. He has graduated 45 PhD students who now hold positions in academia and industries around the world.
