Summary

 

Summary

Tamer Zaki received his MSc and PhD in Flow Physics and Computational Enginering at Stanford University, California. He was also a member of the Mathematical Modeling and Analysis group at Los Alamos National Laboratory.  In 2006, he joined the Mechanical Engineering Department at Imperial College.  He is currently a member of the Thermo-Fluid group. His research interests include modelling and direct numerical simulations of transitional and turbulent flows such as bypass transition, separation, turbo-machinery aerodynamics, and multi-phase flows.

Education

Stanford University, California

  • MSc in Mechanical Engineering, 2001
  • PhD in Mechanical Engineering, 2005
  • Flow Physics and Computational Engineering

ME2 Flow Gallery

Every year, students from ME2 Fluid Mechanics send me photographs of fluid flows, which I use during the course of the year for teaching the subject. Below is a link to the gallery. I have also included photos from other students and members of my group.

UROP Projects

  • The anatomy of turbulent spots
  • Lagrangian coherent structures in transitional flows
  • Droplet impact on super-hydrophobic surfaces
  • Surface textures and coatings for drag reduction in pipe flow
