Interdisciplinary Research Centre


Professor Graham Pullan is Co-Director of the Whittle Laboratory. He leads the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Propulsion and Power and is also the Cambridge Co-Director. He completed his PhD in 2001 at the Whittle Laboratory and has continued his research there - first as the Rolls-Royce/Trinity Hall Research Fellow (until 2008) and then as a member of the academic team. His research is focussed on the three-dimensional aerodynamic design of turbomachinery, and on the development of the computional methods required to achieve this. He has received: the 2012 ASME Gas Turbine Award; ASME IGTI Best Paper Awards in 2011, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018; the 2013 Rolls-Royce Howes Ruffles prize.


  • Improvements to the aerodynamic performance of turbines and compressors are directly linked to reductions in the enviornmental impact of jet engines and power stations.
