Ye Wang is currently a 2nd-year PhD student in Mechanical Engineering at UNSW Sydney, working on computational modelling of hydrogen combustion. Hydrogen is a clean and renewable fuel, and can be converted into motive power for heavy-duty road, rail and marine transportation by fuelling and combusting hydrogen in internal combustion engines. In her PhD project, numerical simulation techniques are used to model hydrogen flows and combustion processes that happen inside engines, based on which she analyses the flow dynamics and flame stabilisation as well as engine performance and emissions. The results are expected to assist in development of highly efficient and low-emission hydrogen-fuelled engines.
Ye got Master of Science in Engineering degree in 2019 at Chinese Academy of Sciences, during which she was working on numerical modelling of fluid dynamics under the practical background of scramjets. She got Bachelor of Engineering degree in Engineering Mechanics in 2016 at Sichuan University, during which she was working on applied numerical simulation of biomedical fluid mechanics in abdominal aortic aneurysm for her thesis.
