Dr Ben Evans is a Senior Lecturer in Aerospace Engineering at Swansea University and is a member of the design team for the BLOODHOUND Supersonic Car Land Speed Record project, with overall responsibility for aerodynamic modelling. Dr Evans' research interests range from computational shape optimisation and high speed aerodynamic modelling to molecular gas dynamics simulation. He also has interests in engineering public engagement and engineering education.
Dr Evans studied Aerospace and Aerothermal Engineering at Jesus College, Cambridge, graduating in 2004. He completed a PhD in Computational Fluid Dynamics at Swansea University in 2008. In his PhD research he focused on computational solutions to the Boltzmann equation applied to problems in the field of molecular gas dynamics.
