    CV

    OBJECTIVE

    Ambitious Ph.D. student determined to deliver results to agreed timeframes, and launch a career in Aeronautics/Astronautics and allied industries. I bring valuable experience from doctoral research, summer internship and current part time job.

    PROFESSIONAL SUMMARY

    I am an Aerospace Engineer currently completing my PhD from UNSW@ADFA (now UNSW Canberra) in aero-thermo-elasticity and fluid-thermal-structural interactions of hypersonic vehicles. My undergraduate degrees (Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering (Honours) and Bachelor of Science – Double Degree Program) from Monash University, together with my work experience - at the DSTO and this PhD - have allowed me to gain expertise in Computational Fluid Dynamics and Finite Element Analysis. The applied and uniquely multi-disciplinary nature of this PhD requires a proficiency in fluid dynamics, heat transfer and structures, and develops skills that can be employed in a wide variety of engineering and science applications. While intent on completing my PhD, I’m also keen to continue developing my career in research and industry that harness my skills.

    Till Date

    University of New South Wales @ Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) – now UNSW Canberra

    Canberra

    Candidate: Doctor of Philosophy (Aerospace Engineering)

    Thesis TopicTransient Heating of Hypersonic Vehicles

    Synopsis of Research:

    I’m currently undertaking a PhD in the area of Aeroelasticity centered on the thermal heating of hypersonic vehicles, using Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) tools such as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software.

    The project aims to understand the interaction between the fluid and the structure (FSI) in hypersonic flow, with a special focus on the thermal aspects of this coupling. In addition, the project will look at ways of using thermal paints that have traditionally been used in the gas-turbine industry, for hypersonic vehicle applications to provide a temperature history of flight.

    This research project is part of the Scramspace hypersonic flight test program and I have undertaken thermal-structural modelling of components and sub-systems mounted on the Scramspace hypersonic vehicle, such as the TDLAS laser diagnostic system developed at UNSW@ADFA.

    Industry placement

    I’ve successfully secured a paid industry placement position at the Air Vehicles Division (AVD) of the DSTO, participating in a specific project into insect flight aerodynamic research to address issues related to bio-inspired design of micro aerial vehicles (MAVs). I conducted CFD modelling of insect flapping flight that converted into a 1 year Final Year Project (FYP) between Monash University and DSTO and involved supervisors from both organisations. Titled “Analysing Insect Flapping Flight using Computational Fluid Dynamics”, the thesis was submitted in November 2010 and was assessed at 94% - High Distinction.

    EDUCATION

     MONASH UNIVERSITY

    BACHELOR OF AEROSPACE ENGINEERING (HONOURS)/

    BACHELOR OF SCIENCE - DOUBLE DEGREE PROGRAM 

    2006 – 2011

    ·Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering (132 credits - Honours)

    ·Bachelor of Science

    oDouble major in Mathematics (72 credits - Distinction)

    oMinor in Physics (24 credits - Distinction)

    oComputer Science – 12 credits

    oAstro Physics – 12 credits

    I have been able to pursue two complimentary degrees simultaneously, and develop a foundation in Mathematics and Physics that supported my Aerospace Engineering degree.

     

    Highlights of the 5 year program include

    ·Multiple Aerospace design projects, such as the design of a gas turbine engine that required undertaking the necessary design calculations on each component to predict engine performance for a typical flight envelope.

    ·Other projects include the preliminary design of a business jet, the design of a landing gear, the coding of a satellite system (in MATLAB) and the Final Year Project that involved CFD modelling of insect-flapping flight, in partnership with the DSTO.

     

     

    IVANHOE GRAMMAR SCHOOL

    INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE DIPLOMA

    2004 – 2005

    The International Baccalaureate Diploma allowed me to complete an internationally recognised and standardised secondary education, while also being appointed Form Captain and undertaking extra-curricular activities such as Soccer, Cricket and First Aid. I completed Mathematics, Physics and Economics at the higher level, and Chemistry, English and Japanese at the standard level.

    I also completed the additional IB subjects - Theory of Knowledge, CAS – Creativity, Activity and Service and the Extended Essay - Minor Thesis in Chemistry using   extensive literature survey to test the hypothesis “hydrogen fuel cells can effectively overcome the environmental impacts created by  fossil fuels for use in future automobiles” . The research methodology for this involved a complete “WELL TO WHEEL” ANALYSIS on the use of different types of fuel cells to power future automobiles. The first stage of this two part study - The WELL TO TANK ANALYSIS focused on the identification of environmental aspects with the corresponding impacts created by fossil fuels and how the use of hydrogen prevents these environmental impacts. The 2nd stage – The TANK TO WHEEL ANALYSIS involved the application engineering into different types of hydrogen fuel cells to power future automobiles.
