Shahram Karami is a Research Fellow at Laboratory for Turbulence Research in Aerospace & Combustion (LTRAC) in the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at Monash University. The main focus of his research is the application of advanced high-fidelity simulation techniques, namely large-eddy simulation (LES) and direct numerical simulation (DNS) of laminar and turbulent reacting and non-reacting flows to understand underpinning physics of these flows.
He joined LTRAC group at Monash University on Jun 2016; his research topic at Monash University is aeroacoustics and hydrodynamic instabilities in under-expanded supersonic impinging jets. He finished his PhD on direct numerical simulation of lifted flames at Combustion Research Group in School of Mechanical Engineering at UNSW. He performed the first DNS of a lifted flame in an atmospheric temperature air environment where the flame speed has an equivalence ratio dependence representative of hydrocarbon fuel.
