I obtained my PhD degree from National Engine Combustion Laboratory in Tianjin University, China, where I worked on numerical and experimental investigations on the liquid fuel flow injected from pressure swirl nozzle for direct injection gasoline engines. After that, I moved to UK to continue my research in City University, Queen's University Belfast and Cranfield University as a Research Assistant or Research Fellow. I have been working on EPSRC, DTI and EU funded projects on aeroengine aeroacoustic interactions, laminar flow nacelle aerodynamics and droplet-wall-interaction phenomena of relevance to direct-injection gasoline engines.
Since I joined Kingston University in 2015, I have established and maintained an active research programme in the field of numerical modelling and computational simulation (CFD) on unsteady aerodynamics in aerospace engineering. Particularly I am interested in the aeroengine and airframe noise prediction and reduction; laminar flow control techniques for aircraft drag reduction, advanced scale-resolving turbulence modelling methods and their applications in turbomachinery, such as NLES, DES and hybrid zonal RANS-LES. I have active collaboration with Bombardier Aerospace Belfast in nacelle aerodynamics and laminar flow control techniques.
