L2T professionals have diverse backgrounds and expertise. All senior team members are experts in thermo-fluid dynamics.


Brendan established the company in 2019 with the goal of providing industries with access to cutting-edge technologies and techniques while offering an exciting and challenging workplace for engineers.

Brendan’s passion for fluid dynamics began during his Aerospace Engineering degree and continued to flourish throughout his PhD in experimental fluid mechanics.

With 15 years of F1 aerodynamic development experience at Sauber, BMW, Mercedes AMG F1, and Red Bull(Scuderia) Toro Rosso Honda Teams, Brendan has gained extensive knowledge in all aspects of experimental and CFD development techniques. His 25 years of experience in highly competitive and technologically advanced environments has enabled L2T to become a leading provider of thermo-fluid insight, solutions, and innovations, with several patents pending.

In his spare time, Brendan enjoys cycling, cheering for the Collingwood football team, traveling, and participating in local community and environmental groups.


Darrin is an internationally recognised engineer with extensive computational fluid dynamics (CFD) knowledge and a wealth of experience with numerous open-source and commercial CFD tools.

Darrin earned his mechanical engineering B.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees from James Cook University in Townsville, Queensland, is a Fellow of Engineers Australia and a registered engineer in Queensland and Victoria.

Darrin has an extensive background in modeling a wide range of fluid dynamics scenarios and has led the development of CFD models for several industrial and defense applications.

For the 12 years before joining Laminar2 Turbulent (L2T), Darrin operated Applied CCM, an engineering company that provided innovative solutions, development, technical support, and training in CFD. In 2021, Darrin joined L2T as the CTO, bringing his wealth of CFD experience and knowledge to L2T.

In his spare time, Darrin tackles jigsaw puzzles, undertakes further study, is a keen Star Wars fan and enjoys walking.


Tom is a fluid dynamicist who is enthusiastic about improving the performance and efficiency of complex systems. Having worked in engineering and project management roles for large-scale development, acquisition, and sustainment projects, he understands the technical aspects of all product lifecycle stages.

Tom holds a Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering and a Ph.D. in fluid mechanics. As a result, he has broad experience with industrial and fundamental fluid dynamics, the latter of which has been published in the leading journals in the field.

On the weekend, he enjoys being outdoors riding bikes and exploring or tinkering with design projects.


Martin has 15 years of experience in science and engineering research/consulting in industries such as petroleum, minerals, environmental, and defense. He specializes in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and statistical data analysis and image recognition and has experience in experimentation.

Martin is passionate about mathematics and physics and this led him to gain a BSc(Hons) majoring in applied fluid dynamics mathematics, followed by a Ph.D. in chemical engineering on CFD for industrial-scale extraction of copper in rocks.

He undertook post-doctoral fellowships with CSIRO and led CFD consulting team, within Wood Group, for environmental and oil and gas engineering firms. He has expertise in the use of software packages such as OpenFoam, ANSYS CFX, and Pointwise meshing. He has published many journal and conference papers regarding fluid dynamics and is currently co-authoring a sub-chapter of a book on CFD modeling of industrial electrowinning of copper.

Martin is a keen golfer and is a committee member at his golf club, loves to garden and everything else outdoors.
