Main Research interests

My research is primarily experimental, although I do combine this with analytical methods and (occasionally) CFD. Key interests are shock wave / boundary layer interaction, flow control, transonic flow, low-Reynolds number unsteady flow and vehicle aerodynamics. Typical research projects revolve around applications such as Formula 1, micro-air vehicles (flapping wings), vertical axis wind turbines, shock control for transonic wings and supersonic engine inlets.
