Personal profile


Dr. Khan obtained his PhD 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 fluidised bed, plunging liquid jet bubble column) in particular, phasic interaction (fluid and particle phase, particle-particle phases, and particle-wall interactions), particle dispersion and segregation, hydrodynamic stability and regime transition. Research involves a combination of mathematical modelling, experimental measurement, and computational 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.
