About me

G'day, welcome to my KTH webpage. I completed my Bachelor of Engineering and PhD, both in the field of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Queensland in Australia.

I have over 16 years experience in turbomachinery aeroelasticity.  This includes five years working at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and over 12 years performing consulting work for many turbomachinery manufacturers.

My current research interests are

  • influence of tip clearance flow on aerodynamic damping in turbomachinery
  • flutter analysis of steam turbines
  • application of a linearized flow solver to determine unsteady flow in multi-row turbomachinery
  • design of turbochargers
  • calculation of aerodynamic damping for mistuned rotor blades/blisks
