Dr Roeland de Kat is Leverhulme Early Career Fellow within Engineering and the Environment at the University of Southampton.

Roeland graduated from Delft University of Technology in 2007 with an MSc in Aerodynamics and Aerospace Engineering, and obtained a doctorate from Delft University of Technology in 2012 for his thesis entitled "Instantaneous planar pressure determination from particle image velocimetry".

Roeland joined the Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics Research Group in 2011 as a research fellow working on turbulent shear flows with Professor Bharathram Ganapathisubramani.




Research interests

Roeland's current research focuses on experimental determination of small and large-scale structures and their interaction and evolution in turbulent shear flows, in particular boundary layers.

Roeland is interested in experimental fluid mechanics in general.  Besides his current research he is interested in the following topics:

  • Pressure and/or force determination from Particle Image Velocity (PIV)
  • Vortices
  • Feathered flight

Research group
