Dr Maryam Ghodrat is a senior lecturer in School of Engineering and Information Technology at UNSW. Before joining UNSW, she was a lecturer and prior to that postdoctoral research fellow at Western Sydney University and Swinburne University of Technology.
Dr Ghodrat’ s expertise is in the application of combustion and fluid dynamics theories to solve problems related to fire spread, Wildfire-Urban Interface (WUI) and fires buoyancy-driven fluid dynamics. Her research also involves in modelling multi-scale and multi-physics turbulent flows and developing effective numerical tools for practical applications to support mitigating the impact of natural disasters.
Maryam is also working in the field of energy efficiency technologies with focus on the application of numerical modeling and thermodynamic analysis in development of new processes.
