Researcher biography

Dr. Nicholas Gibbons an open-source programmer and numerical simulations expert presently employed as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Queensland. His research interests include numerical simulation of compressible turbulence, high-temperature effects in re-entry flows, and the fluid dynamics of electrically charged plasmas. By applying this research to practical problems in space engineering and aeronautical design, he hopes to play a small part in an exciting future of space travel.
