Big whorls have little whorls,
Which feed on their velocity,
And little whorls have lesser whorls,
And so on to viscosity

Academic Background

Daniel T. H. New graduated from the National University of Singapore in 1998 with a B.Eng. (Hons) degree. Intrigued by fundamental fluid flow, he joined the Masters of Engineering research programme and subsequently embarked on a PhD research programme to elucidate the jet in crossflow phenomena under the supervision of Professor T. T. Lim and Associate Professor S. C. Luo. He joined Temasek Laboratories @ NUS in 2001 and was involved in research work relating to skin friction drag reduction, jet-mixing enhancements and control of slender bodies at high angles-of-attack. In 2004, he obtained his PhD and went to University of Texas, Arlington for a post-doctorate research collaboration in the area of pulse detonation engines for Temasek Laboratories. Later in 2005, he joined the Department of Engineering in the University of Liverpool as a Lecturer. During this period, he focused on jet-mixing enhancement and control techniques, sponsored by UK EPSRC and The Royal Society. He returned to Singapore in 2010 to join the Division of Aerospace Engineering at the Nanyang Technological University. His current research is supported by research agencies and industrial partners such as MINDEF, DSO, MOE, MPA, SMI, EDB, Jurong Port Pte Ltd and others.
