Dr Laurent Le Page

BEng (Hons), DPhil

Dr Le Page earned a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Mechanical Engineering from Victoria University, Australia, with a specialisation in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. He also holds a Doctor of Philosophy in Aerospace Engineering, investigating hypersonic separated flows using advanced laser diagnostics. Dr Le Page also has industry expertise, having previously worked as a powertrain evaluation engineer at the Toyota Technical Centre, Australia. In this role, he conducted field testing and contributed to the development of prototype engine and emission control systems.

Research Interests

Dr Le Page’s research interests include non-equilibrium aerothermodynamics, high-speed flow physics, laser-based diagnostics and combustion chemical kinetics for alternative fuels and future energy systems
