About us

First and foremost we are a scientists driven by natural curiosity to understand physical processes and desire to make a difference to the real world problems. Our work brings together knowledge from across different disciplines, enabling sustainable development through understanding, predicting, and controlling fluid flows and noise generation mechanisms associated with fluid-structure interactions. We are working on both fundamental and applied research problems and always look for opportunities to apply our work outside a laboratory environment. We draw our greatest satisfaction from translating high-quality research into tangible designs that industry can adopt.

Assist. Prof. Oksana Stalnov

Dr. Oksana Stalnov joined the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering as Assistant Professor in October 2015. Oksana holds B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in direct-track (with magna cum laude) and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Tel-Aviv University, Israel. During the course of her Ph.D. studies, she was awarded the Minerva travel grant to conduct experiments at the University of Stuttgart (Germany) and the Rieger Foundation Fellowship in Environmental Studies to conduct research into application of flow control to enhance the amount of energy harvested by the wind. Following submission of her Ph.D., Oksana accepted a Research Fellow appointment at the Airbus Noise Technology Centre, University of Southampton, UK. In February 2015, she was awarded the Marie Sklowdowska-Curie Individual Fellowship to facilitate simultaneous study of rotor aeroacoustics and aerodynamics at the Technical University of Berlin, Germany.

Oksana’s primary research interest is in unsteady aerodynamics and aeroacoustics. Her work builds on original approach incorporating several disciplines into a single study by tackling complex problems from several directions. The main challenge is that the mathematical equations describing fluid flows interaction with a structure and production of sound cannot be analytically solved in most practical engineering situations, particularly when the flow is unsteady and turbulent. To predict such flows, it is, therefore, necessary to develop mathematical models that can describe the flow and noise behaviour simultaneously. For such models to be truly helpful, they need to be developed in combination with experiments in a wind-tunnel, in order to observe, and ultimately understand, the details of the complex flow and noise generation mechanisms.
