Aimee Morgans' research is on sound, flames and aerodynamics. It aims to make energy generation and transport more environmentally friendly.

Topics include thermoacoustic instabilities in aero-engines/gas turbines and the aerodynamic drag of road vehicles.

She joined Imperial as a Lecturer in 2007, becoming Senior Lecturer in 2011, Reader in 2014 and Professor in 2017. She has PhD, MEng and BA degrees in Engineering, all from Cambridge University. 

She holds a €2M ERC Consolidator Grant (2018-23) on acoustic-flow interaction models in thermoacoustics, which follows a €1.5M ERC Starting Grant (2013-18) on modelling and control of thermoacoustic instabilities. She has also held a RAEng/EPSRC Fellowship (2004-09) on this topic.

She lectures (and is course leader) for the 3rd year undergraduate Fluid Mechanics course. She co-leads the Department Athena SWAN committee and recently led the successful Athena SWAN bronze application in the Department of Aeronautics.
