Melissa completed her PhD at the University of Melbourne in 2018 under the supervision of A/Prof. Daniel Chung and Prof. Jason Monty, having completed undergraduate degrees at the same institution.

From early 2018 until early 2021 she was a Postdoctoral Fellow within the Thermo Fluids Research Group at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway, before returning to the University of Melbourne as a Research Fellow. 

Melissa’s research expertise is in the high-fidelity simulations of fundamental turbulent flows that feature critically in energy and transport technologies, for which she often employs strategically-designed numerical ‘thought experiments’ to decouple effects that are conflated, or add controlled physics. To date her research interests have included wall-bounded flows, homogeneous isotropic turbulence, turbulent multiphase flows as well as particle tracking and sizing algorithms for use with laboratory turbulent flows.

Melissa identifies as culturally and linguistically diverse.
