Fellows & Staff

David Gillespie

Teaching

I give college tutorials on thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and sometimes on mathematics. I am a Lecturer in the Department of Engineering Science where my teaching is more narrowly focused in Mechanical Engineering.

About me

I attended Jesus College Oxford as an undergraduate and, following a short period in the chemical industry, as a graduate obtaining my doctorate in 1996.  I have been the Rolls-Royce Fellow in Engineering Science since 2003.

Research

Based at the Rolls-Royce University Technology Partnership in Heat Transfer and Aerodynamics, my research interests include: improving the efficiency of internal cooling systems for gas turbine blading; air-seals for high speed, high temperature rotating machinery and computational fluid dynamics for heat transfer applications.
