Aimee Morgans is Professor of Thermofluids in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Imperial College London. 

Her research aims to make energy generation and transport more environmentally friendly. In particular, she is interested in modelling and suppressing thermoacoustic instabilities in gas turbine combustors, and modelling and reducing the aerodynamic drag of bluff bodies, like road vehicles.

She holds a €1.5M ERC Starting Grant, ACOULOMODE (2013-18), on modelling and control of thermoacoustic (combustion) instabilities. She previously held a RAEng/EPSRC Fellowship (2004-09), also on thermoacoustic instabilities.

She joined Imperial as a Lecturer in 2007. She has PhD, MEng and BA (starred First) degrees in Engineering, all from Cambridge University.

She lectures an undergraduate course on Fluid Mechanics and recently led the successful Athena SWAN bronze application in the Department of Aeronautics.
