Dr. Filippone's research background is on aerodynamic systems for both ground and airborne vehicles. Specifically, he is interested in the development of new high-fidelity methods for the analysis, optimisation and design of aerospace systems and their application to real-life cases.
His current interests are in four general areas: 1. aero-acoustics (with emphasis on aircraft noise and noise progagation); 2. aero-mechanics of fixed- and rotary-wing vehicles (commercial airplanes, helicopters and VTOL), 3. environmental analysis (exhaust emissions, acoustic emissions, high-altitude effects of flight); 4. multi-disciplinary applications in simulation engineering. His strategic interests are aligned with the themes of transport, energy and environment.
Past experience includes reseearch in industrial flows, wind energy generation, power systems, multi-phase flows, wind tunnel research (mostly aerodynamics/acoustics) and other laboratory measurements, stochastic optimisation and more.
Dr. Filippone is the author of textbooks on aircraft and rotorcraft flight performance. He is a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society a Fellow of the Institute of Mechanics Engineers and a Chartered Engineer.
