is Chair of Computational Mechanics in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Melbourne.
His main interest is in high-fidelity simulation of turbulent flows and the associated noise generation in order to gain physical understanding
of flow and noise mechanisms and to help assess and improve low-order models that can be employed in an industrial context, in particular using
novel machine-learning approaches. He received his PhD in 2004 in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Arizona and prior to joining the
University of Melbourne, he was a Professor of Fluid Dynamics and Aeroacoustics in the Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics research group at the
University of Southampton and headed the UK Turbulence Consortium (www.turbulence.ac.uk), coordinating the work packages for compressible flows
and flow visualisations and databases. He was awarded a veski innovation fellowship in July 2015 entitled: "Impacting Industry by enabling a
step-change in simulation fidelity for flow and noise problems"
