I’m in my final year of a PhD with the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. My research is an experimental investigation in fluid mechanics, looking at the effect of surface roughness on wake flows. I joined the Laboratory for Turbulence Research and Combustion after graduating top of my class, but not before taking 3 months to travel Europe.
I’m driven by a desire to improve myself and combine my experience and skills in interesting, novel and effective ways. As a PhD researcher I enjoy being able to explore new topics and being forced to constantly learn new skills and knowledge. The autonomy I have to deep dive on interesting topics and projects keeps me curious and means I’m continuously learning and honing skills.
In my spare time I enjoy tinkering with electronics and IoT type applications, woodworking, Stoic philosophy, hiking, running and cycling.
