- Prof. Omar K. Matar
Imperial College London
Omar Matar is Professor of Fluid Mechanics at Imperial College London. His research interests are in transport phenomena and multiphase flows with a wide range of applications: process intensification, light-mediated manufacturing, surfactant-replacement therapy, crude-oil and food processing, coating flow technology, manufacturing of pharmaceuticals, pipeline transportation of crude oil, distillation, and microfluidics. Professor Matar has studied a wide range of problems in fluid mechanics including surfactant transport on non-Newtonian layers, phase inversion in concentrated emulsions, thin film flows over rapidly rotating discs, nonlinear bubble sound interactions, fouling in heat exchangers in crude oil distillation units, dynamics of liquids spreading on compliant substrates, multiphase flow in large-diameter pipes, advanced experimental and numerical methods for the prediction of complex vapour liquid annular flows, and the removal of soft-solids adhering to solid substrates. Professor Matar has given over 40 invited presentations, and has been invited to write a number of influential reviews, including one in thin films in Reviews of Modern Physics (impact factor 51). He has co-authored over 150 journal articles that have so far received 2500 citations, with an h-index of 29. He is the Editor-in-Chief of Multiphase Sci. & Tech., an Executive Associate Editor of J. Eng. Math., and on the Editorial Advisory Boards of Int. J. Multiphase Flow, and J. Engineering.
Topic of Keynote: Numerical Simulations of Crude-Oil Fouling
