Dr Bruce leads a research group in experimental high speed aerodynamics at Imperial, utilising Imperial’s supersonic and hypersonic wind tunnels. His research focuses on how air interacts with objects travelling at high speed, including understanding the shock waves which form on high speed planes and designing atmospheric re-entry vehicles for future space exploration missions. Dr Bruce joined Imperial in 2011 and currently teaches undergraduate courses in aircraft aerodynamics and aerothermodynamics for re-entry vehicles.
