Lyazid Djenidi currently works as a Professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Newcastle (Newcastle, NSW, Australia). He received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Aix-Marseille (France) in 1989. He spent one year and a half at Cambridge University (Cambridge, UK) as a Postdoctoral Fellow before joining the University of Newcastle in 1991 under the prestigious Australian Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship scheme (three years). Djenidi was then appointed as a Lecturer from 1994 to 2000, a Senior Lecturer from 2001 to 2007, and an Associate Professor from 2007 to 2012 at the University of Newcastle. His research interest is mainly in turbulent flows ranging from wall shear flows to free shear flows. In 2003, he developed an interest in the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) and its application for predicting both laminar and turbulent flows. Since then, Djenidi uses the LBM to investigate the decay of turbulence in grid turbulence and cylinder wakes. He published 62 international journal articles (amongst them 8 in the Journal of Fluid Mechanics and 18 in Experiments in Fluids) and about 69 conference papers.
