Mr Rafael Perez i Torro is a Postgraduate research student with the AFM group within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Rafa started studying aerodynamics at the University of Madrid.  During that time he got involved in the design of a Solar Car Prototype using CFD.  After his first degree, Rafa came to the University of Southampton to study for an MSc in Race Car Aerodynamics.  His dissertation, supervised by Dr Jae-Wook Kim, was a high lift wavy leading edge device study, and this forms the basis for this PhD work.
