Malcolm Davidson is Leader of the Computational Fluid Dynamics Group. The group investigates fluid dynamics and transport phenomena in single and multiphase flows in process engineering with emphasis on both dispersed particle-fluid systems and deforming fluid interfaces.
Current Research Activities
Nano and Biomolecular Engineering
Materials and Minerals Engineering
Flow Process Modelling
PhD in the area of physiological fluid dynamics. His subsequent research career developed broadly in the computational and mathematical modelling of fluid dynamics, with previous positions in the Australian Atomic Energy Commission and the CSIRO. His research extended into porous media flows before concentrating on industrial fluid flows with an emphasis on flow fundamentals.
