Biography:

Alex White is a Senior Lecturer in Thermofluids at Cambridge University Engineering Department. He is also a Fellow and Director of Studies at Peterhouse.

Alex read Engineering at King's College Cambridge between 1985 and 1988, and remained at King's for his PhD. After four years of post-doctoral research (in Cambridge, Lyon and Toulouse) he took up a lectureship at the School of Engineering in Durham. He returned to Cambridge in 2000 where he is now a member of the Energy Group.

Research Interests

Alex's research interests include two-phase flow (especially vapour-droplet flows), the thermodynamics of power generation, Computational Fluid Dynamics, and heat pumps.

His PhD was on condensation in steam turbines and he has since worked on other two-phase flow applications, particularly in the area of wet compression for gas turbine cycles. Aside from some steam-tunnel experiments undertaken for his thesis, his work is mainly theoretical and numerical.

Teaching

First Year lecturer in Thermodynamics.

Fourth year Lecturer in Statistical Mechanics (4A9).
