Researcher biography

Phillip Swann finished his PhD in July 2020 at UQ in the field of supercritical carbon dioxide turbomachinery looking at thermal management strategies. He then was a Design Engineer in the Centre for Energy Futures working on the design and scaled demonstration of a prototype 1 MW supercritical carbon dioxide radial turbine and power cycle. He is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow within the Centre for Hypersonics working with industry to improve performance, operability and safety of abrasive media blasting nozzles. His general areas of research interests include unsteady fluid flow systems, experimental investigations of flow phenomena and rotating flow (Taylor-Couette) heat transfer.
