I joined the University of Strathclyde in 2007 and I’m currently a Reader in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineeing. I am committed teaching in thermodynamics, heat transfer, energy system management, marine pipeline and computational fluid dynamics.
My recent research interests are numerical simulations and modeling of marine related fluid problems. There are three main research directions in my research group. (a) The flow analysis in bio-mimetic study, such as the physical phenomena associated with a flapping wing and swimming fish with their applications in bio-inspired robot and propeller. (b) The general fluid mechanics and aerodynamics. (c) The marine and wind renewable energy devices (tidal/current and offshore renewable energy).

- A Feasibility Study on Hydropower Generation by Hydrostatic Pressure
- Xiao, Qing (Principal Investigator) Liu, Wendi (Researcher)
- The project is commissioned by the Subsea Hydropower Ltd and supported by the ETP Knowledge Exchange Network Engagement Fund. This project will carry out mathematical modelling to ascertain the feasibility of the proposed subsea turbine design.
If the design is not feasible as it stands then changes will be suggested to achieve this.
Should the initial design as provided prove feasible then improvements will be suggested so as to increase overall efficiency of the product.
