Biography

Richard Jefferson-Loveday is an Assistant Professor in the Engineering Department at the University of Nottingham. Prior to this he worked as a Senior Research Associate at the Whittle Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. He has worked on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) projects supported by Siemens, Rolls-Royce and EPSRC. In 2014 he and his colleagues were recipients of the IGTI Turbomachinery Committee Best Paper Award for their work on transition in low pressure turbines.

Richard is a member of the Gas Turbine and Transmissions Research Centre (G2TRC) research group.

Current Research

Richard is interested in the computational modelling of turbulent flow, in particular aerospace flows, using large eddy simulation (LES). Much of Richard's research has focussed on gas turbine flows including compressor stability, turbine and cavity flows and exhausts. He is also interested in unsteady heat transfer problems, CFD model development and high performance computing (HPC).
