Phone: (03) 9616 0628 - Ext: 50628
− I am Lecturer of Mechanical Engineering at the School of Engineering and Technology at Central Queensland University (Australia).
Dr. Panchasara has contributed her research in the area of design and application of fuel-flexible clean combustion systems , novel fuel injectors, study of fundamental fuel injection systems, and combustion characteristics of alternative fuels. She is also a part of the Clean Energy Research Group at CQ University. Thorugh her research epxertise, Dr. Panchasara has tried to integrate fundamentals of Atomization and sprays, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, thermodynamics and combustion, with advanced flow and spray measuring techniques both experimentally and computationally using ANSYS and FLUENT as applied to both power generation (Gas Trubines) and Atutomotive engines.
Dr. Panchasara is currently undertaking Masters of Engineering program at the Melbourne campus in Mechanical Engineering at CQUni. She is involved in teaching courses:
ENEM14015 Dynamic Mechanical systems
ENEG20001 Australian Engineering Practice.
ENEM 14014 Capstone Thermofluid Engineering
ENEM14016 Fluid Machinery
Prior to CQUni, Dr. Panchasara has worked at RMIT Uni Melbourne as a lecturer for the Masters of Sustainability Program and research fellow for the leading the AUTO-CRC program aiming to make automotive industry more cleaner and greener using natural gas. She also has an extensive experience working with leading power generation Company in the USA, as a Combustion Aerothermal Engineer at General Electric, Energy, SC, USA.
