Sam's current research focuses on using experimental and CFD techniques to study off-design compressor performance and unsteady flows in gas turbine exhaust ducts.
Sam's PhD thesis investigated the effect of circumferentially uniform and non-uniform bleed air extraction on compressor performance.
Sam supervises Cambridge Tripos Papers 1A: Mechanical Vibrations, 1B: Mathematical Methods and 3A3: Thermofluids II
