Contact Dr Xiaoxiao Sun


Dr Xiaoxiao Sun is a lecturer in Low Emissions Gas Turbine Combustion. Dr Sun completed her PhD in 2018, which focused on the preliminary design of an aero engine low emissions combustor using a multi-fidelity modelling approach with analyses of fuel injection, heat transfer, emissions and other combustor performance characteristics. She has since led the numerical and experimental resesarch on the development of hydrogen micromix combustion technology within the EU H2020 ENABLEH2 project.

Current activities

Xiaoxiao currently serves as the workpackage lead for CleanSky 2 UTOPEA project. The work aims to assess the feasibility of developing a dual fuel combustor and a novel hydrogen combustor for future aero engine applications. Dr Sun also collaborates with Siemens Energy on the numerical modelling and experimental validation of liquid fuel spray characteristics.
