Loic Salles is a Research Fellow in Rolls-Royce Vibration UTC in Mechanical Engineering department. He joined Imperial College in 2012. He works on the developpment of the in-house code FORSE. He obtained his PhD in 2010 coinjointly at Ecole Centrale Lyon and Bauman Moscow State Technical University. He graduated as a rocket engineer from BMSTU in 2006 and as a mechanical engineer from Ecole Centrale Lyon in 2006.
