Dr Zhihua Xie took up his lectureship in the School of Engineering at Cardiff University in January 2017 from Imperial College London. He obtained Ph.D. in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in 2010 from the University of Leeds. He worked as a research associate in computational hydraulics at Cardiff University from 2010 to 2012 and a research associate in numerical modelling of multiphase flows at Imperial College London between 2013 and 2016. Dr Xie’s research interests span a broad range of topics in interfacial and multiphase flows, environmental fluid mechanics, turbulence modelling. He is a reviewer for a wide variety of journals, including: Computers & Fluids, Journal of Hydraulic Research (IAHR), Journal of Hydraulic Engineering (ASCE), Ocean Modelling and Journal of Geophysical Research.
