Personal profile


Dr Tony Vo is a lecturer and the Director of Learning and Teaching 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 (CFD). 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 is the current unit coordinator for ENG1060 - Computing for Engineers.
