Personal profile


Dr Tony Vo is a Senior Teaching Fellow and the Director of Education in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. He received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering investigating flow instability in rotating flows using computational fluid dynamics. His post-doctorial research involved fluid mechanics, flow stability and heat transfer. Examples include rotating and non-rotating horizontal convection informing global currents in Earth's oceans, planetary scale structures in the form of polar vortices, and magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow and heat transfer in electrically conducting fluids within ducts for heat extraction relevant in nuclear fusion reactors.

His current research is engineering-education focused. He is investigating engineering-education tools to enhance the learning and teaching experiences within tertiary education. Examples include audience response systems, e-assessments, and digital badging. He specialises in teaching large core first-year units for which he has received various awards. He is also an academic advisor for the student team Precious Plastic Monash, whose mission is to reduce plastic pollution by building and empowering a global community to use plastic as a precious resource through a commitment to community, education, and design.
