Dr Zainab Saleh

Lecturer in Engineering

About

I joined the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Kingston University in Nov 2016 and currently perform as a lecturer in aerospace engineering. I accomplished my PhD in aerospace engineering at Queen Mary University of London in 2014 where I carried out an experimental and computational investigation on tip leakage flows over the blades of high pressure gas turbines at transonic conditions. I worked in the School of Engineering and Materials Science, Queen Mary University of London for more than a year before I joined Kingston University in Nov 2016.

My research area includes aero propulsion such as intake fan and high pressure turbines and other turbo-machineries in gas turbine engines, fluid flows, compressible flows, aerodynamics, flow control and fluid mechanics. I have a lot of experience conducting experimental testing in high speed wind tunnels at transonic conditions. I also have experience in running computational fluid dynamic simulations at both high speed and low speed flow conditions using ANSYS commercial software. I am currently participating in the aerospace research group in Kingston University and I am very keen in performing research activities including conducting individual and collaborative research, publishing high quality journal papers, accomplishing research grants and participating in national and international conferences.
