Dr Nagabhushana Rao Vadlamani
Dr Nagabhushana Rao Vadlamani completed his PhD in Engineering at Robinson in July 2014. Subsequently, he continued working as a post-doctoral researcher on a Rolls-Royce and TSB funded project. Prior to his PhD, Rao worked 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 modern aircraft 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.
