Lecturer at the University of Cambridge specialising in fundamental combustion research


Jenni Sidey, Ph.D.

I am an University Lecturer in the University of Cambridge Department of Engineering.  My research interests lie in the area of experimental and numerical fundamental turbulent combustion with a specialisation in flame visualisation, emission mitigation, and local extinction in gas turbine applicable systems. My current work extends towards alternative fuel development, emission reduction for diesel engines, and large-scale energy analyses. 

I studied Mechanical Engineering at McGill Unviersity in Montreal, Canada, where I participated in a hydrogen generation project at McGill's Alternative Fuel Laboratory and a microgravity flame propagation experiment in McGill's Shockwave Physics Group. I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge in 2015 investigating highly preheated and diluted flames as part of the Rolls-Royce University Gas Turbine Partnership in Combustion. I continued my work at the University of Cambridge as a Research Associate on a European Commission project studying unsteady phenomena in lean-burn combustors.
