- Lecturer (Systems Power and Energy)
Dr Manosh Paul is a Lecturer in Thermofluids at Mechanical Engineering and a member of Systems, Power & Energy Research Division within the School of Engineering of the University of Glasgow. He joined the University of Glasgow in August 2003 after working at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Imperial College London as a Post-doctoral Research Assistant on the Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of Turbulent Combustion with Radiative Heat Transfer in a Gas Turbine Engine. He gained his PhD in Fluid Mechanics in 2002 from the Department of Mechancial Engineering, University of Bath. He has First class degrees, with distinctions and gold medals, in both BSc honours (Mathematics) and MSc (Applied Mathematics), obtained from the University of Dhaka in 1997 and 1999 respectively.
Dr Paul's current research is interdisciplinary and focuses on a wide range of topics within the field of Energy, Bioengineering, Thermofluids and Combustion. He is particularly interested in developing of novel and advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) techniques/programs and applies these to solve medical and industrially relevant problems. The group has close connections with the other research divisions and groupings across the University, other academic insitutions, NHS and industires in the UK and internationally. His research is currently funded by the EPSRC, Royal Society, University of Glasgow, UK and Overseas Governments, and Industires.
