Short Bio: Andrea Cassinelli is a PhD candidate working under the supervision of Prof. Spencer Sherwin and Dr. Francesco Montomoli. His project is sponsored by Rolls-Royce plc. and it focuses on bridging the gap between academia and Industry by developing best practices and computational methods to simulate low-pressure turbines as a virtual cascade using spectral/hp element methods.
In 2016 Andrea completed his MSc thesis in Advanced Computational Methods for Aeronautics, Flow Management and Fluid-Structure Interaction at Imperial College London, with a thesis titled "Regeneration of near-wall streamwise vortices in wall-bounded turbulent flow" which was awarded the Airbus Prize and Robert Bird Group award.
Prior to that, he obtained his BSc in Aerospace Engineering Magna cum laude from Politecnico di Milano.
