Manosh C Paul
School of Engineering
University of Glasgow, UK
Dr Manosh Paul is a Lecturer in Thermofluids and member of the CFD Group of Systems, Power & Energy (SPE) Research Division within the School of Engineering of the University of Glasgow. He gained his PhD in Fluid Mechanics in 2002 from the University of Bath. Subsequently, he moved to the Imperial College London and worked in the Department of Mechanical Engineering as a Research Associate until August 2003. 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. His current research is interdisciplinary and focuses on a wide range of topics within the field of Energy, Bioengineering, Thermofluids and Combustion. He is an author/co-author of over 70 peer-reviewed journal/conference papers, 2 invited book chapters, and 1 edited book; and has been recognised internationally with a number of invited talks, committee member and chair in international conferences. He is a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science (Part C of IMechE, UK), Open Journal of Physical Chemistry (OJPC) USA, and Journal of Fluids and Thermal Sciences. He has been a consultant for several industries and external PhD examiner in other UK Universities.
Dr Manosh 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 the development of novel and advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) techniques/programs and applies these to solve medical and industrially relevant problems. He is currently leading a group of researchers who are working on various multidisciplinary projects (e.g. biomass combustion, NOx and soot predictions, radiative heat transfer with LES, photovoltaic system, micro-scale heating systems, nanofluids, various bio-medical related projects, and fundamental aspects of flow stability). He has strong research collaboration with colleagues in the other research divisions and groupings across the University, other academic institutions in the UK and overseas, NHS and industries in the UK. His research is funded by the EPSRC, Royal Society, University of Glasgow, UK and Overseas Governments, and Industries.
