Simon W. Evans
Professor Evans is interested in experimental aerodynamics related to aero-propulsion applications. Areas of particular interest include compressor and turbine aerodynamics, subsonic inlets, and flow control. Teaching interests include thermo-fluids and aeronautical engineering disciplines within the department's Aerospace program.
