Master of St Catherine's

Roger Ainsworth

Professor of Engineering Science

I became Master of St Catherine's in October 2002, having been a Fellow in Engineering of the College since 1985. Originally I trained as an undergraduate apprentice with Rolls-Royce Aeroengines in Derby, before attending Jesus College Oxford as an undergraduate and postgraduate, and obtaining a D.Phil in 1976.

After ten years in industry, working for Rolls-Royce and also the Atomic Energy Research Establishment at Harwell, I returned to Oxford to continue my research in the field of aeroengine thermofluid flows. My main interest has been in the development of experimental techniques for measuring flows in the transonic regime, particularly applied to gas turbines. Other areas of interest have included the development of laser velocimetry techniques, and the history of technology, particularly the role of mechanical engineers in developing and inventing new machines.
