Tom Hickling

Stipendiary Lecturer

I am a DPhil candidate within the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford. My research focusses on the computational prediction of flows in rotating cavities. I am also developing novel multi-scale approaches for LES conjugate heat transfer. I completed my Masters’ degree at Durham University, where I researched turbulence modelling in S-duct diffusers. I am always on the look out for exciting new developments in HPC, flow solvers, and multi-physics.
