Biography

Dr. Emilie Sauret is currently Associate Professor in the School of Mechanical, Medical & Process Engineering, Queensland University of Technology (QUT), and an elected council member of the Australasian Fluid Mechanics Society. She received a PhD degree in Turbulence Modelling from the University Pierre & Marie Curie, Paris, France in 2004. Prior to her postdoctoral position (2009-2012) at the University of Queensland, she spent 5 years in the automotive and oil and gas industry both in France and in Australia. In 2013, she was awarded an ARC-DECRA and joined QUT where she teaches in the Mechanical Engineering degree. Dr. Sauret has extensive interdisciplinary research experience in computational fluid dynamics, applied mathematics and applied physics. Her current research focusses on the development of advanced computational techniques to accurately simulate complex non-ideal fluid flow behaviours that are critical for the rational design and robust optimisation of engineering applications, in particular in the field of energy and biomedical engineering. She has produced over 80 publications, attracted $8M in research funding and established collaborations across the globe. In 2019, an Endeavour Leadership Fellowship supported her visiting position at MIT and in 2020, Dr. Sauret was awarded an ARC-Future Fellowship to uncover fundamental microscale physics, pioneering research on computational microfluidics.
