Research Interests

  • <p style="text-align: left
  • ">My research focuses on the development of novel simulation approaches to enhance the reliability and capability of computational fluid dynamics based models. I have applied my self-written code on a range of topics across fire safety science including forensic fire investigations, bushfire and fire whirl modelling, characterisation/decomposition kinetics for polymers. In addition, my research also contributes to the development of bio-inspired and multifunctional nano-composite flame retardants. Now I am aiming to synergise my expertise to formulate a systematic, state-of-art fire assessment platform to effectively and physically described the fundamental flaming and degradation processes, charring and self-extinction behaviours of flame retarded polymers.
