Biography

Professor Rakesh Mishra joined the School of Computing and Engineering of the University of Huddersfield in the year 2000 as a Research Fellow. Professor Mishra was later appointed as a Lecturer in Sept. 2003, a Senior Lecturer in 2004 and a Reader in 2009. Professor Mishra was conferred the prestigious title of Professor of fluid dynamics in summer 2011. From 1988 to 2000 Professor Mishra worked as a Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and Reader at MNNIT, Allahabad, India. During this time Professor Mishra was seconded to renowned Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, India for PhD work (1993-1996) which he finished in 1996. His teaching career started in July 1987 when he joined the College of Engineering Pusad, India as a lecturer. 

 Professor Mishra’s main teaching area is Thermo-fluids and various modules developed and taught by him include Aerodynamics, Thermodynamics, Automotive Power Units, Advance Energy Systems and Computational Fluid Dynamics. Professor Mishra leads the ‘Energy Emission and the Environmental research group’ within the Centre of Efficiency and Performances Engineering of the University. Professor Mishra also contributes to highly successful IMechE accredited Mechanical, Automotive and Energy Engineering courses at different levels. These courses recruit students from all over the world. Professor Mishra is a chartered Engineer and a Fellow of Institution of Mechanical Engineers as well as a Fellow of Higher Education Academy.

Prof. Mishra is an active consultant to many Thermo-fluid industries and has run a number of knowledge transfer partnerships successfully. Prof. Mishra is very active in renewable energy research and is involved with many renewable energy organizations. Prof. Mishra is also a member the Fluid Mechanics & Fluid Power Society of India which promotes effective use of fluid power in developing economies. Prof. Mishra has published more than 200 papers in various journals and conference proceedings of repute and has been invited to give key note lectures in various conferences. Prof. Mishra has also organised and chaired a number of conference sessions dealing with green issues.
