Personal profile


Professor Artur J. Jaworski, PhD; MSc(Eng); DIC; CEng; FRAeS; FHEA, is currently Chair in Mechanical Engineering and Head of Department of Engineering and Technology at the School of Computing and Engineering, University of Huddersfield, UK. He has previously served as Chair in Energy Technology and Environment at the University of Leeds (2013-2017), Chair in Engineering and Head of Thermofluids Research Group at the University of Leicester (2011-2013) and Lecturer and Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester (2000-2011). In 2015, he has held a Visiting Professor appointment at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Cagliari, Italy, and in 2017 a Visiting Professor appointment at the School of Computing and Engineering, University of Huddersfield, UK.

Professor Jaworski received his MSc(Eng) from the Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering of the Warsaw University of Technology (1986-1991), and PhD and DIC from the Department of Aeronautics, Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, London (1992-1996). He subsequently trained as postdoctoral research associate at the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (1996-2000). He has held two prestigious fellowships in the field of Thermoacoustic Technologies: EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship (2004-2009) and Royal Society Industry Fellowship (2012-2015). He has co-authored in excess of 140 publications, of which around 60 are in refereed scientific journals.

Research Expertise and Interests

Professor Jaworski's research track record includes: theoretical and numerical analysis of heat and mass transfer processes in thermal-solar systems, experimental fluid dynamics and aerodynamics related to vortex dynamics and coherent structures generated by vortex breakdown flow field, aerodynamic flow control using synthetic jet actuators, sensor design, measurement and instrumentation for multiphase processes, non-invasive imaging techniques such as industrial process tomography and most recently Thermoacoustic Technologies which utilize thermal-fluid interactions between acoustic field and compressible fluid to engineer thermodynamic machines (engines and coolers) with no moving parts. Some of his current research interests are listed below (links provided lead to personal research pages with further detail).
