Aimee Morgans' research on fluid mechanics is aimed at making energy generation and transport more environmentally friendly. Her research interests span sound, flames and aerodynamics. She currently holds a €2M ERC Consolidator Grant (2018-23) on how sound and flow interact in combustors, and previously held a €1.5M ERC Starting Grant (2013-18) and a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowship (2004-09) on thermoacoustic instabilities.
Aimee Morgans 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 is a Chartered Engineer and a former Amelia Earhart Fellow. She is a member of the Scientific Steering Committee for PRACE (the European partnership for high performance computing) and the Steering Committee for the UK's CoSeC (Computational Science Centre for Research Communities).
She lectures (and is course leader for) the 3rd year undergraduate Fluid Mechanics course. She co-leads the department Equality and Diversity Committee, which achieved an Athena SWAN Bronze Award in 2019. She is a member of the Management and Research Committees for Imperial's Centre for Doctoral Training in Fluid Dynamics.
