Teaching and learning

Professor McIntyre has taught across a range of courses for over 20 years, with particular emphasis on first- and second- year physics and science. He uses active learning strategies in all his courses and performs research into teaching methods including the use of blended learning modules for preparing students for lectures, and the development of interactive on-line simulations. Professor McIntyre has won a number of teaching awards at university and national level, and is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Researcher biography

Professor Timothy McIntyre's research interests are in the fields of: Laser Diagnostics (Holographic Interferometry, Laser Induced Fluorescence, LEI Velocimetry, Schlieren/Shadowgraph, Spectroscopic Methods, Non-linear Methods) and Hypersonic Flow (Super-orbital flow, Scramjets, Facility Development, Non-equlibrium flow, Radiation)

He received his PhD from the Australian National University in 1989. His chief research projects are in the areas of:

Development of advanced laser diagnostics for studying high enthalpy flows generated in University of Queensland’s superorbital expansion tubes.Use of super-orbital expansion tubes for experimental study of high enthalpy reacting flows relevant to space vehicle entry into planetary atmospheres.The study of supersonic combusting flows in a shock tunnel.
