I am the Interim Head of Department for the Aerospace and Aircraft Engineering. In addition, I have been the course leader for the BSc Aerospace Engineering, BEng Aviation Engineering, BEng Aircraft Engineering and MSc Aerospace Engineering. I joined Kingston University in 1996 as a senior lecturer having many years of teaching experience and course leadership. I graduated from Queen Mary College, the University of London in 1989 and received my doctorate degree funded by the EPSRC in 1992. At the University of Surrey, I spent three years working as a post-doctorate research fellow working on a research project jointly supported by the former Defense Research Agency (DRA) and the EPSRC. My research expertise is in the field of Large-Eddy Simulations and Pattern Recognition of coherent structures in turbulence flows. I am the Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and assessor panel member for the Learning and Teaching Enhancement Center (LTEC). My teaching subject fields are aerodynamics and flight dynamics. Being passionate about teaching, I have been recognised for teaching excellence by the University.
