Dr. Jelly holds a BEng (Hons.) in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Glasgow and a PhD in Computational Fluid Dynamics from Imperial College London. He worked as a Research Fellow at the Universities of Cambridge, Glasgow and Melbourne before joining the School of Engineering as a Lecturer in early 2022.
Dr. Jelly's main research interest is the numerical investigation of turbulent flow phenomena.
Current research activities include:
- Computational fluid dynamics and heat transfer.
- Direct numerical simulation of turbulent flow over rough surfaces.
- Large-eddy simulations of turbo-machinery flows.
- Physics of pulsatile turbulent flows.
- Turbulent drag reduction by superhydrophobic surfaces.
