QUALIFICATIONS:

 

POST-GRADUATE

2004 - 2009 DOCTORATE OF PHILOSOPHY, ENGINEERING (RESEARCH)

MONASH UNIVERSITY - CLAYTON CAMPUS

'On-road turbulence'

This project thoroughly documented the on-road turbulent wind environment experienced by automobiles. It quantified for the first time the effects that wind speed, terrain type and traffic conditions have on the turbulence intensity, length scale, and spatial correlations experienced on-road. These findings were compared with measurements made in the Monash University wind tunnel to justify a new set of targets for the modeling of turbulence in automotive wind tunnels.

2002 - 2004 MASTER OF SCIENCE, ENGINEERING (RESEARCH)

MONASH UNIVERSITY - CLAYTON CAMPUS

'An investigation of V8 exhaust noise in high performance automobiles'

A range of automobiles were studied to understand the most important metrics for exhaust sound quality in the high performance car market. The major achievement of the project was the identification, comprehension and synthetic reproduction of the subjective phenomena known as 'V8 exhaust burble'.

 

TERTIARY

1997 - 2001 BACHELOR OF ENGINEERING (MECHANICAL)
