Peter is a registered Engineer-in-Training with the Professional Engineers and Geoscientists Newfoundland & Labrador(PEGNL). He recently completed his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Memorial University of Newfoundland. He has a prior Master’s degree in Renewable Energy from Newcastle University, United Kingdom. Peter has engaged in several research and development projects involving renewable energy, energy systems, system optimization, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling. Peter has 7 years experience in renewable energy and mechanical engineering industries. Peter has worked in various capacity providing expertise in renewable energy generations, distribution and transmission network assessment for grid connection, energy systems optimization, computational fluid dynamics simulation and analysis, and mechanical project management.
Through his research activities in CFD (computational fluid dynamics) modeling and entropy production optimization inflows involving nanofluids, as well as numerical simulation of entropy-based error indicators to characterize CFD errors, Peter has successfully developed and improved a CFD software by incorporating a mesh generator and subroutines to compute local entropy production rates.
