Biography

Jimmy Philip is a lecturer and the Australian Research Council DECRA fellow. He received his B.E and Masters degree from the University of Pune and Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay, respectively, both in Mechanical Engineering, and his PhD from the faculty of Aerospace Engineering, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. Subsequently, he was a post-doctoral researcher at LadHyX, Ecole Polytechnique, France and at the University of Melbourne. For about three years, he also worked as a Mechanical Engineering being a member of the Edison Engineering Development Program at the Global Research Center of the General Electric Company in India. His research interests are shear flow instability, wall-bounded and free-shear turbulent flows including buoyancy effects, and entrainment mechanisms.
