Biography

Postdoctoral research assistant working on the design, manufacture and aerothermal testing of novel turbine design with Dr. Paul Beard and Prof. Kam Chana at the Oxford Thermofluids Institute. Research interests cover heat transfer, fluid mechanics, multiphase flow, optical and thermal measurement techniques.

She completed her PhD at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) under the supervision of Prof John Thome and Dr. Mirco Magnini, focusing on the characterisation of the thermal and hydraulic performances of a micro-pin fin evaporator for future use of on-chip two-phase flow cooling.
