Professor in Thermofluid Dynamics
Head of the Energy Group
Matthew P. Juniper is a Professor in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge. He studied Natural Sciences and Engineering 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 are in the broad area of fluid mechanics. They are: reacting flows, flow stability, mixing, suppression or generation of turbulence, adjoint-based numerical methods for optimization of flow geometry. He has worked with companies on a variety of projects relevant to the ANAM Initiative including identifying the instabilities and their control in both a gas turbine fuel injector and a cyclonic separator; designing a low pressure, high mixing, off-gas burner for a methane-powered fuel cell; generating mono-dispersed (same sized) droplets with an ultrasonic droplet generator.
Subject groups/Research projects
Departments and Institutes
- Engineering Department:
- Professor in Thermofluid Dynamics
| Injector Dynamics
The Injector Dynamics group performs fundamental research into the stability of jets, wakes, flames and thermo-acoustic systems. The group applies this research to industrial situations, such as the combustion chambers in aircraft engines and ground-based gas turbines.
| AIM Network
The Advanced Instability Methods (AIM) Network, funded by EPSRC, has been set up in order to apply the techniques of non-modal stability analysis to industrial problems.
| ANADE Training Network
ANADE (Advances in Numerical and Analytical tools for Detached flow prediction) is an Initial Training Network project funded under the European Commission's Framework Programme 7.
