Research interests

Since 2018, I have been working as a Research Associate at the Whittle Laboratory, University of Cambridge, researching turbomachinery for power generation applications such as Organic Rankine and Supercritical CO2 cycles. My current research aims to use both experimental and computational methods in order to identify the impact of non-ideal gas dynamics on transonic turbine performance.

My other research interests include propulsion system aerodynamics for for large civil transonic aircraft with a specific focus on aero-engine exhaust system design.
