Professor of Thermofluid Dynamics, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge
Professor Matthew Juniper is Professor of Thermofluid Dynamics, and Head of the Energy Group, in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge. He studied Natural Sciences Part 1 and Engineering Part 2 at the University of Cambridge and received his M.S and PhD from the Ecole Centrale de Paris. After a period as a consultant at McKinsey & Co. he joined the University of Cambridge as a lecturer and fellow of Trinity College. His research interests include nonlinearity and non-normality in thermoacoustic systems, local and global stability analyses of hydrodynamic flows, and adjoint-based methods for optimization and continuation analysis.
His research is in the broad area of flow instability, encompassing hydrodynamic instability and thermoacoustic instability. This research is inspired by developments in the analysis of nonlinear dynamical systems and the analysis of linear stability with adjoint methods. Its broad aim it to take concepts that have been proven for simple systems and scale them up into tools that can be used in industry.
