Dr Bagus Nugroho is an Associate Lecturer at the fluid mechanics group, department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Melbourne. His expertise is in the field of fluid mechanics, particularly in turbulent flow, aerodynamics, flow control and rough surface flow. Prior to his Postdoctoral appointment at Melbourne University, Dr Nugroho worked at the University of Southampton as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Dr Nugroho obtained his PhD degree from the University of Melbourne in Mechanical Engineering. He holds two Bachelor Degrees in Mechanical Engineering (Honours) and Science in Physics from the University of Melbourne. Additionally, he also has two Postgraduate diplomas in Nanotechnology from Oxford University and Business from Melbourne Business School.
He is currently involved in a large-scale multidisciplinary joint research project that aims to improve the efficiency of ship operation and management by providing a methodology and technology that can quantify the emission and fuel usage penalty due to ship-hull roughness. Dr. Nugroho is also part of the team that investigates the Aerodynamics of future Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV) with academics from the University of Adelaide.
