Dr Daniel Edgington-Mitchell

Research Field: Aerospace Engineering

Our world is governed by the movement of fluids, however understanding the turbulent motions of these fluids remains the last unsolved problem of classical physics. Dr Edgington-Mitchell uses laser diagnostics to study how aircraft turbulence produces sound and develop systems to reduce community aircraft noise exposure.

His team have also studied the fluid physics in medical inhalers, aiming to facilitate a more consistent delivery of medicine to the lung. Daniel’s extensive public outreach includes facilitating From STEM to Space at the Astrolight Festival, numerous school visits, public talks, and media interviews.

Dr Edgington-Mitchell completed his PhD at Monash University in 2013, and is currently a Senior Lecturer at Monash University.
