Dr Priyanka Dhopade


Priyanka Dhopade is a postdoctoral research assistant working with Prof Peter Ireland and Dr Marko Bacic at the Osney Thermo-Fluids Laboratory. Her research expertise is in the field of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) of turbomachinery heat transfer, aerodynamics and aeroelasticity. She is currently contributing to various projects in collaboration with Rolls-Royce plc including turbine and compressor tip clearance control and turbine internal cooling.

She recently completed her PhD at UNSW Canberra under the supervision of A/Prof Andrew Neely on aeromechanical modelling of rotating fan blades to investigate high-cycle and low-cycle fatigue interaction.
