Personal profile


Dr. MS Khan obtained his Ph.D. in November 2017 from the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Newcastle (UoN), Australia. Prior to enrolling at UoN in 2013, he completed a BSc degree in Mathematics and a Master’s degree in Applied Mathematics from Khulna University (Bangladesh) in 2010 and 2012 respectively. He worked as a Postdoctoral researcher at UoN (2017-2018) and RMIT University (2018-2019) and was also involved in teaching in several engineering and computational mathematics courses. Dr. Khan’s research is focusing on multiphase processes in multiphase reactors (solid-liquid fluidized bed, plunging liquid jet bubble column) in particular, phasic interaction (fluid and particle phase, particle-particle phases, and particle-wall interactions), dispersion and segregation (particle), hydrodynamic stability and regime transition. Research involves a combination of mathematical modeling, experimental measurement, and CFD simulation.

Research interests

Dr. Khan’s current research interests aim to address the real-life multiphase process engineering problems in the mineral and metallurgical industries using a widely accepted and innovative CFD-DEM (computational fluid dynamics - Discrete Element Method) approach.
