Dr Andrew Dennis Johnstone

Andrew is an Associate Research Fellow at the Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences at the School of Mechanical, Materials, Mechatronic and Biomedical Engineering, University of Wollongong. He is presently in the final stages of completing his PhD at University of Wollongong, graduating in spring 2017. His research background is previously in the field of renewable energy technology exploiting the energy sources of ocean waves and currents.

In the Steel Research Hub, his research activities are focussed on the application of numerical methods to investigate the response of the thin films produced by the jet-wiping process of continuous galvanising lines to perturbations in the jet-wiping parameters in addition to the laboratory-scale study of related aspects of the process.
