Jacqueline Mifsud

PhD Student, University of Warwick

I graduated from the University of Malta in 2017 with a B.Eng (Honours) in Mechanical Engineering, where my main areas of interest were Fluid Dynamics and Maritime Engineering. In my final-year research project, ‘Cavitation in Maritime Control Surfaces’, I designed and built an experimental test-rig capable of characterizing the behaviour of cavitation on different section shapes commonly used as control foils in the maritime industry.

I am now a PhD student at the University of Warwick and a member of the Micro and Nano Flows Group in the School of Engineering. Throughout my PhD, I will be researching micro-bubble cavitation (with CFD) for the purposes of ultrasonic cleaning, in partnership with Waters Limited.
