Biography Having graduated from my BEng degree from University of Brighton with First-Class (Hons) in Aeronautical Engineering, I began my career by joining Ricardo plc in 2018. My role as a CFD analyst in Ricardo involved working on in-cylinder engine development projects with responsibilities to conduct various steady state and transient simulations on different engines, analysing piston designs, FIE specifications and their effect on fuel air mixing quality and combustion. As well as combustion analysis with moving geometry and combustion modelling. In September 2019, I began my Masters Degree in Advanced Mechanical Engineering at the University of Sussex and graduated with a Distinction. In addition to the modules of the degree, my master’s thesis was based on an industrial project with Beko Plc, titled “Numerical modelling of the muffin baking process”, The main objectives of the project were to reduce experimental work the company is undertaking for muffin testing, and also to predict colour and height of muffins under different cooking algorithms. CFD modelling was a key tool in the success of the project.
Research My PhD project “Predicting Performance of Medicine: Disintegration and Dissolution of Pharmaceutical Tablets”. This project is funded by CMAC, and the aim is to conduct an in-depth study on the tablet dissolution and disintegration process and develop mechanistic understanding of disintegration and dissolution via experimental and numerical study.
