Dr Nagabhushana Rao Vadlamani

Junior Research Fellow
Bowring Research Fellow

Dr Nagabhushana Rao Vadlamani completed his PhD in Engineering at Robinson in July 2014.  Subsequently, he continued working as a post-doctoral research on a Rolls-Royce and TSB funded project.  Prior to his PhD, Rao woked with the Digital Mockup team in Airbus India on the safe installation of various aircraft systems in A350 XWB.  He obtained his master's degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, where he specialised in thermal engineering.  Rao's research involves developing reliable numerical tools to build efficient components for the modern airdraft engines.  He is a computational fluid dynamicist with specific interest in capturing transitional and turbulent flows using high-fidelity simulations.  In 2013, he and his colleagues were the recipients of the IGTI Turbomachinery Committee Best Paper Award for their work on transition in low pressure turbines.
