Dr Tom Scanlon BEng PhD CEng MIMechE

Lead Consultant, Dr Tom Scanlon BEng PhD CEng MIMechE


After a first degree in Environmental Engineering at the University of Strathclyde, Tom undertook a Ph.D. in Vortex Shedding Flowmeter Pulsating Flow CFD Studies at the same university. Subsequently, he was awarded a JM Lessels scholarship from the Royal Society of Edinburgh for a one-year post-doctoral position at the Institute de Mécanique des Fluides de Toulouse, France in the field of numerical oceanography. The IMechE presented Tom with the Alfred Rosling Bennett Premium and Charles S Lake Award in 2003 for CFD in applied aerodynamics. In 2013 Tom returned from an EPSRC-funded sabbatical in the USA carrying out fundamental research in rarefied gas dynamics at the University of Michigan and the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory in California. He was a senior lecturer in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Strathclyde specialising in heat transfer, fluid mechanics and applied CFD from 1994-2017.
