Adam Higgens is a Postgraduate research student within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

My research focusses on understanding the noise generated by the tip vortex of a propeller blade, and how the interaction of that vortex with a duct can be used to control the noise emitted.

I obtained my undergraduate degree here in Ship Science (Study Abroad), graduating in 2015.
