Rank Professor of Engineering, University of Cambridge, Department of Engineering
Paul Tucker is interested in taking PhD students.
Professor Paul Tucker is Rank Professor of Engineering and works within the Turbomachinery, Energy and Fluid Mechanics Division at the University of Cambridge. His key research interest is the computation of unsteady, turbulent, complex geometry aerodynamic flows.
Prior to joining the University of Cambridge, Professor Tucker worked as a Professor in the Civil and Computational Engineering Centre at the University of Swansea leading aerospace. Prior to this he was a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Engineering at the University of Warwick. He is an Associate Editor of the AIAA Journal and a member of the ACME board.
