Dr Nicholas Bojdo was appointed as Lecturer in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Manchester in 2015. His expertise is in modelling and simulation of fluid flows, with particular application to particle transport, porous media, and gas-turbine thermodynamics. Dr Bojdo's current research applies this expertise to predict engine power loss due to installation effects or degradation by ingested particulate such as dust or volcanic ash.
Dr Bojdo graduated from the University of Manchester in 2008, with an MEng in Aerospace Engineering. After a year abroad studying language, he returned in 2009 to begin his doctorate, which he completed three years later. He was awarded the EPSRC Doctoral Prize in 2012 which allowed him to develop his research and work closely with industry on numerous projects. In October 2013, Dr Bojdo was appointed as Honorary Lecturer and Research Associate within the School of MACE.
