Dr Frankie Jackson is a lecturer in Mechanical Engineering in the School of Computing and Engineering at the University of Huddersfield. He delivers lectures both in the UK and abroad. His main teaching areas are aerodynamics, computational fluid dynamics, finite element analysis, and thermodynamics. Prior to this, he worked as a Research Fellow in the Energy, Emissions and Environment Research group, working on a wide range of academic and industrially related projects. He is technical co-lead of the school’s high performance computing facility. He is also an Associate member of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and vice secretary for the Yorkshire automobile division committee.

He obtained is PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Leeds in 2021. His research was focused on meso-scale computational fluid dynamics modelling with the lattice Boltzmann method. As part of this, he developed novel models for droplet deposition and evaporation dynamics optimised for use on high performance parallel computers. Prior to this, he completed his bachelor's degree in Energy Engineering at the University of Huddersfield.

Currently, his key research areas include smart house research, digital twinning, meso-scale computational fluid dynamics modelling, multiphase modelling, and aerodynamics. Furthermore, he is working with numerous companies through knowledge transfer partnerships.
