Sean's Research

About Me

Hi, I’m Sean O’Byrne, Associate Professor at UNSW Canberra.

This is my personal web page.  Although I am an employee of the University of New South Wales, none of the opinions expressed in these pages should be taken as being endorsed or approved by my employer. My official work web page is where you can find my work email address.

This website is designed to share with others who might have similar interests some of the research that I’m interested in, and the research methods that I use, in the hope that the information will be of use to others.  I’m particularly interested in ideas for pursuing and documenting experimental research more effectively, and this web site is mostly about that.

I am a scientist interested in applying laser-based measurements to a range of interesting engineering problems, particularly in the areas of high-speed flows and combustion, but also in a range of other areas of interest such as sensors in plastics and computer simulation.  I’m always looking for keen students to help with our research projects.  If you are an Australian student looking to start a PhD in Space Science, lasers or hypersonics in particular, please contact me via the UNSW Web page.
