$800k ARC Discovery and DECRA grant successes! The Sheard Lab, 10 Nov 2017
Our lab secures over $468k from the Australian Research Council under the Discovery Projects scheme to investigate horizontal convection at ocean-relevant conditions, and Dr Steve Dubsky secures a $358k Discovery Early Career Researcher Award.
Welcome to our new PhD student, Peyman Mayeli The Sheard Lab, 3 Oct 2017
We extend a warm welcome to the newest member of our team. Peyman Mayeli joins the group to study non-Boussinesq effects in natural convection flows.
Work by PhD student Azan Sapardi, Wisam Hussam, Greg Sheard and our UK collaborator Alban Potherat, on the flow around a 180-degree bend has been featured on the cover of the leading Journal of Fluid Mechanics.
We congratulate Dr Ahmad Hamid on the conferral today of his PhD. Ahmad's thesis investigated electrical and physical mechanisms for heat transfer enhancement in magnetohydrodynamic duct flows.
