Personal profile


Dr. Hongyi Jiang is a Senior Research Fellow at The University of Western Australia (UWA). He received a PhD from UWA (2017) focussing on Fluid Mechanics (of flow around slender cylindrical structures). He then received a prestigious Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) from the Australian Research Council in 2019.

Dr. Jiang’s research interests include fluid mechanics, geomechanics, and coastal and offshore engineering, while his main research expertise includes fundamental fluid mechanics of bluff-body flows (e.g. wake structure, turbulence, vortex-induced vibration (VIV), flow-structure-sediment interaction, flow control, etc.) and its applications to improved design and safer operations of the sub-sea pipelines/cables used in the offshore oil and gas and renewable energy industries (e.g. regarding on-bottom stability, local scour, and VIV response of the pipeline).

Dr. Jiang has authored 24 journal papers in mainstream international peer-reviewed journals in fluid mechanics and geomechanics. As the lead author, he has published 18 journal papers, including 9 in Journal of Fluid Mechanics and 6 in Physics of Fluids, arguably the two best journals in fluid mechanics.
