Senior Lecturer in Fluid Mechanics, University of Portsmouth

My primary expertise is in aerodynamics both experimental and numerical. I have industrial and academic experience in wind tunnel testing and using computational fluid dynamics (CFD). My PhD research was aimed at modelling the fluid-structure interaction of convertible car hoods and was sponsored by EPSRC and Jaguar cars.

My research interests lie in fluid-structure interactions with a particular emphasis on membranes and modelling flow through porous media. I also have interests in wind tunnel testing techniques, bio-inspired aerodynamics, road vehicle and motorsport aerodynamics.
