Nobes, David S.


David S. Nobes is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Alberta and considers flow phenomena from a macro/micro, experimental-fluid-mechanical point of view. His research areas include combustion, turbulent jets, oil sands separation processes, two-phase flows, active control of fluid flows, blood flow in the heart and energy conversion using Stirling engines. To undertake this research, his group has custom developed unique optical measurement systems that have been deployed over a wide range of scales. These advanced laser/image/optical techniques have been funded by a CFI, NESRC and through industrial collaboration. He has supervised more than 50 MSc and PhD students and published more than 200 peer-reviewed publications.
