Dr Jae Wook Kim is Associate Professor within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Dr Kim is undertaking fundamental research on unsteady aerodynamics and flow-induced sound generation in various engineering problems via high-performance computational simulations. For this purpose, he has developed an in-house code CANARD (Compressible Aerodynamics & Aeroacoustics Research coDe), which is based on high-order accurate compact finite difference schemes. His recent funded research work includes (but not limited to) the effect of bioinspired leading-edge geometry on aerofoil-turbulence interaction noise (PI, EPSRC: EP/J007633/1); aerofoil stall noise (Co-I, EPSRC: EP/R010900/1); aero-engine fan wake (Co-I, Rolls-Royce & Innovate UK: ACAPELLA); next-generation wind-turbine blades (PI, Vestas & EPSRC DTG); low-noise underwater propeller blades (PI, DSTL & EPSRC ICASE); nonlinear infrasound propagation (PI, AWE & EPSRC CDT); noise prediction models for wind-turbine blades (PI, Vestas & Innovate UK: KTP009787); gust response of wind-turbine blades (PI, Vestas & EPSRC ICASE); and, aircraft landing-gear noise (Co-I, Airbus UK & France). Dr Kim is Fellow of Royal Aeronautical Society (FRAeS); a senior lifetime member of American Institute of Aeronautics & Astronautics (AIAA); a member of UK Turbulence Consortium (EP/L000261/1); and, a member of EPSRC Associate Peer Review College. He is also a member of Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre in Gas Turbine Noise.
