Personal profile

Biography

Dr. Dadzie completed his PhD in 2005 at Aix-Marseille University (France). His PhD research was concerned with gas-surface interactions in solving the Boltzmann kinetic equation and predicting rarefied gas flow phenomena. This follows a Masters in Mathematics from Togo (2000) and an MSc in Fluid Mechanics from Pierre & Marie-Curie University in Paris (2002).

Between 2006 and 2011 he was a research fellow at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow after declining a ‘Maitre de Conference’ position at Aix-Marseille University. During his time at the university of Strathclyde, he developed his volume diffusion kinetic and hydrodynamic theory for predicting non-continuum effects in gases, mostly in collaboration with Prof. Howard Brenner at MIT (Massachusetts, USA), and under supervision of Prof. Jason M Reese and Prof. Colin R McInnes.

After a brief spell at Glyndwr University (Wrexham, UK) as a Senior Lecturer in Aeronautical Engineering, he joined the Institute of Mechanical, Process and Energy Engineering (IMPEE) at Heriot-Watt University.

Research interests

Present primary research interests concern non-conventional fluid flow phenomena such as those observed in rarefied gases, supercritical fluids and gas mixtures, with applications into micro-and- nanotechnology and renewable energy. He is also interested in other compressible flow problems and, generally, in the theoretical modelling and simulations of various engineering flow systems.
