    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    Turbulent Shear Flow

    Urban Environment Pollution Simulation

    Indoor Ventilation Simulation

    Large Eddy Simulation


    Andrew is a Professor of Computational Engineering, who joined Aston University in March 2024.  He is the academic lead for the Aston High Performance Computing (HPC) facility, due to be launched in 2024.

    Andrew's main research focus is on the use of Large Eddy Simulation and its application to turbulent shear flow.  He has a string publication track record in the field, and he is considered a leading expert on mixing layers and coherent structures.  His work on turbulent shear flow simulation won a Best Paper Award at AIAA Aviation 2015.  In parallel with shear flow research, Andrew has a keen interest in the modelling of contaminant dispersion in both an urban context, and for indoor ventilation.  He has developed a framework to marry LES data with Virtual Reality, in order to study human behaviours in polluten environments.  This research was funded through a Royal Academy of Engineering / Leverhulme Trust Research Fellowship in 2020/1.
