  • Dr. Qiang Sun commenced DECRA within the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Melbourne in August 2015. He has built up a broad research portfolio on undertaking outstanding cross-disciplinary research in the areas of fluid mechanics, colloidal and surface science, electromagnetic and acoustic scattering where his expertise is focused on the theoretical and numerical aspects of these fields. In particular, he developed the robust boundary regularised integral methods for a wide range of problems, including free surface movement phenomena, cavitation bubble oscillations, Stokes drag calculations, the scattering of sound waves and electrostatic interactions in colloidal and molecular systems. Also, the revolutionary field-only non-singular surface integral method for electromagnetic scattering he developed demonstrates a powerful tool to study the local field enhancement effects due to multi-scale scattering of interest to applications in micro-photonics.
