Dr Mahdi Azarpeyvand

photo_1-2Dr Mahdi Azarpeyvand is a senior lecturer of Mechanical Engineering. His main fields of research are Acoustics, aeroacoustics, fluid mechanics and turbulence. Mahdi holds a Royal Academy of Engineering research fellowship (2011-2016) to conduct research on the development of new technologies for improving the aerodynamic and aeroacoustic performance of rotating blades using passive and active flow-control methods. 

Mahdi obtained his PhD in 2008 from the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR), University of Southampton. The subject of his PhD thesis was jet noise prediction using a RANS-based method, in collaboration with TNO (Delft, Holland) and Rolls-Royce (Derby, UK). After the completion of his PhD, Mahdi started working as a research assistant at the Rolls-Royce UTC, carrying out research on a wide range of aero-acoustical problems, such as airfoil noise, duct acoustics and jet installation effects. Before joining the University of Bristol, Mahdi was with the University of Cambridge as a RAEng research fellow (2011-2013). He also became a fellow of the Sidney Sussex college, University of Cambridge (2012-2013). His other research interests include: sound propagation effects, linear acoustic scattering, acoustic trapping and acoustic radiation force.
