Research Associate

Research Group: 
Applied Aerodynamics


Research Interests:
Unsteady heat transfer and aerodynamics, cooling strategies in gas-turbine combustors, experimental fluid dynamics, gas-turbine internal flows, optical measurement techniques.


  • PhD in ‘Enhanced Cold-Side Cooling Techniques for Lean Burn Combustor Liners’ from Loughborough University, 2013.
  • Joined the Rolls Royce UTC in Combustion System Aerothermal Processes as a Research Associate in 2011.


  • Heat transfer measurement of components within gas turbine combustors, principally using IR and liquid crystal thermography; including design and commissioning of experimental facilities.
  • Experimental studies of combustion system internal flows. Measurement techniques include miniature five-hole pressure probes, CO2 gas tracing, PIV, hot wire anemometry and Kulite fast response pressure transducers.
