Dr Orest Shardt
Funded Investigator Modelling
Dr Orest Shardt is an expert in computational modelling of multiphase flows and a Funded Investigator in SSPC. He uses high performance computing to investigate how phenomena at small scales (down to micro- and nanometers) affect the behaviour of large industrial-scale processes, such as those that are used for manufacturing of pharmaceuticals. Examples include processes that involve flows of liquid droplets, gas bubbles, and/or solid particles within another fluid. Dr Shardt received his BSc and PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Alberta (Canada), held a postdoctoral fellowship at Princeton University (USA), and then joined the University of Limerick in 2016 as a lecturer.
Areas of expertise include: • Interfacial phenomena in multiphase flows • Solids suspensions, emulsions, bubbles • Heat and mass transfer • Colloidal systems • Computational modelling • High performance computing • Parallel programming
