Expertise: Engineering

Dr Hendrikus Huijberts
My main areas of interest are modelling, analysis and control of dynamical processes encountered in engineering; this includes synchronisation and control of chaotic systems.

Prof David Lee
I am an expert in cell and tissue engineering, in particular load-bearing tissues such as articular cartilage. I also conduct research on bio-ethics and law and biocompatibility testing.

Prof John Rose
My research is in the field of heat transfer and has resulted in upwards of 200 research papers. The work covers a wide range of topics related to phase change heat transfer and more particularly condensation e.g. dropwise condensation, condensation of metals, condensation of mixtures, Marangoni condensation, kinetic theory of phase change, molecular dynamic simulation of phase change, condensation on microfinned tubes and in microchannels. The experimental and theoretical work is both fundamental and application-related (e.g. nuclear, heat exchangers, condensers, refrigeration/air conditioning). The theoretical studies have wide generality so that the results are applicable to any fluid.

Prof Hazel Screen
My research aims to understand how some of the different tissues in our bodies, (particularly tendons and heart valves) are built to be able to withstand the loads they experience in the body. I am particularly interested in understanding how and why they get injured, and looking at ways to prevent this happening.

Dr Mohammad Shaheed
My research interests include conventional and intelligent modelling and control, TRMS and helicopters, real-time high performance computing and parallel processing.

Prof John Stark
I am currently working on the electrospray process and development of novel applications of the process. Two major applications are the use of electrospray for micro-propulsion for spacecraft using colloid nano-thrusters, and the use of electrospray in the fabrication of biological structures applicable to tissue. I have also conducted experimental work on arc jets and the use of the Direct Simulation Monte Carlo technique for the modelling of rarefield flows associated with spacecraft and the modelling of space debris.

Dr Ranjan Vepa
My research interests include design of control systems, and associated signal processing with applications in smart structures, robotics, biomedical engineering and energy systems, including wind turbines. More specifically, my interests include dynamics and robust adaptive estimation and control of linear and nonlinear aerospace, as well as energy and biological systems with parametric and dynamic uncertainties.

Prof Wen Wang
My work encompasses biofluid mechanics, microcirculation, tissue deformation, gas exchange and osmoregulation.

Dr Eldad Avital
I conduct research on fluid mechanics, computational aeroacoustics, numerical algorthims, water waves and the instability of two phase flow.

Prof James Busfield
I specialise in the physical behaviour of soft matter, such as elastomers and rubber materials. Properties of interest include abrasion, friction, fracture, creep, fatigue, viscoelastic behaviour, modulus enhancement and composite filler reinforcement. I also investigate smart soft materials that can sense their environment and soft actuating materials that can change shape in response to a physical stimulus.

Prof Martin Knight
My research is focussed on 'mechanobiology' or how living cells and tissues respond to physical forces. This includes the mechanical properties of living cells and tissues and the biological response. In particular I am interested in the role of the fascinating cellular structure known as the primary cilium (cilia in plural) and how this structure is involved in health and disease. I work with a variety of different cell types including cartilage cells, tendon cells, neurons and stem cells helping to understand important diseases such as osteoarthritis, tendonopathy and ovarian cancer.

Prof Julia Shelton
My field of research covers biomechanics, in particular, the development of measurement systems applied to the body. Aspects of my research include the evaluation of tissue engineered structures and developing accelerated wear testing, in vitro, for the evaluation of total hip joint replacements.

Prof Xiaodong Chen
My research interests are in microwave devices, antennas, wireless communications and bio-electromagnetics. I have authored and co-authored over 300 publications (book chapters, journal papers and refereed conference presentations). I have been involved in the organisation of many international conferences. I am currently a member of UK EPSRC Review College and Technical Panel of IEE Antennas and Propagation Professional Network.

Dr Robert Donnan
My broad area of expertise lies in electromagnetics, and more specifically I have conducted research in formulating beam-optic techniques for performance verification of radiometric systems designed for such tasks as earth remote-sensing and cosmology. I am also interested in developing and applying interferometry to study electromagnetic response of photonic band gap and optically left-handed systems.

Prof Yang Hao
Electromagnetics; Photonic Band Gap (PBG) structures including Left-Handed Meta-materials (LHMs) at microwave frequencies; characterisation of body-centric WLANs for wearable computer technology; mobile broadband systems and photonic antennas for Radio-Over-Fibre (ROF).

Ms Laurissa Tokarchuk
Intelligent systems; intelligent agents; user modelling; knowledge representation and learning.

Prof Joost De Bruijn
I conduct research into (synthetic) bone replacement materials and adult stem cells to eventually culture living bone for clinical use (tissue engineering and regenerative medicine).

Dr Jens-Dominik Mueller
I conduct research on computational fluid dynamics, biological flow simulation, and numerical shape and topology. Recently, I have focused on development and application of sensitivity methods in CFD. My research group develops adjoint CFD solvers using automatic differentiation software tools, investigating adjoint sensitivity methods for unsteady flows, which are typical for industrial applications.

Prof Theodosios Alexander
My research focuses on energy engineering which comprises areas such as sustainable and renewable energy sources, future energy engineering, clean fuels and biofuels as well as engine performance and emissions. Other areas of interest include gas turbines and turbomachines, wind turbines, reciprocating piston engines and unsteady thermofluid dynamics in powerplant components.
