Dr R.Jason Hearst is Research Fellow within Engineering and the Environment at the University of Southampton.

Jason Hearst is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics Research Group at the University of Southampton. His research focuses on the experimental investigation of the influence of turbulence on other flows and bodies. In particular, he is investigating the interaction of a turbulent free-stream flow with a turbulent boundary layer, as well as the influence of turbulence on the wake and drag of various geometries.

2015: PhD in Aerospace Engineering, “Fractal, Classical and Active Grid Turbulence: From Production to Decay”, University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies, Canada.

2009: BASc (Hon.) in Engineering Science (Aerospace Option), University of Toronto, Canada.
