Andrew Dann

Andrew is a postdoctoral researcher working with Prof Peter Ireland and Dr Marko Bacic at the Osney Thermo-Fluids Laboratory at Oxford University. His research focus is on Applied Heat Transfer and Instrumentation Techniques. The project he is currently undertaking is a collaboration with Rolls-Royce plc involving tip clearance control of the HP turbine (see project GTHTF).

Prior to joining Oxford University, he worked at Loughborough University within the Combustion and Aerodynamics University Technology Centre in collaboration with Dr Steven Thorpe. The research at Loughborough was also a Rolls-Royce plc sponsored project and looked at thermal expansion characteristics of a heated large civil aircraft turbine case with impingement cooling manifolds. Before this he worked at The University of Queensland's Centre for Hypersonics where the focus of his research was on heat transfer instrumentation of hypersonic flows, expansion tube facility re-comissioning, and scramjet inlet testing. This work was carried out under the supervision of Prof Richard Morgan and Prof Michael Smart.

Andrew obtained his PhD in hypersonic shock-wave boundary layer interaction at The University of Queensland, Australia in 2009.
