PhD opportunities

Dr Talei considers PhD applications from motivated students with a strong background in computational fluid mechanics (CFD). The entry requirements for study at the University of Melbourne can be found at the future students website.


Dr Talei is a teaching staff in Master of Energy Systems. The aim of this degree is to equip students with the required skills for making informed decisions about energy issues that incorporate technical, economic, environmental and social considerations. This program will suit graduates of engineering, science, business, finance and economics degrees.
Dr Talei teaches Non-renewable Energy which is a core subject in the Master of Energy Systems. This course examines in detail the main forms of non-renewable energy and their uses.
