Dr Graham Spelman

Teaching Associate, Engineering

I did my undergraduate degree and PhD in Engineering at Fitzwilliam, and have supervised the mechanical engineering modules for several years.

When I'm not flying gliders around the local countryside, or the Lake District, I work as a postdoc in the Dynamics and Vibrations Group at the Engineering Department.

My current research on modelling uncertainties in the dynamic response of blades in gas turbines is funded by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.

In the past I've done research into nonlinear vibration of built-up structures, statistical methods of vibration modelling and the dynamics of gongs – the musical side of things was the focus of my PhD.
