Professor Lawson has been a lecturer in the fields of aerodynamics, thermofluids, missile and aircraft propulsion. He also has extensive experience in the development and application of particle image velocimetry (PIV) and laser Doppler anemometry (LDA) to high speed, large scale, non-Newtonian and multi-phase flows. Past applications have involved work for Rolls-Royce plc, BAR F1, Jaguar Racing and MBDA. His current research focus is on the application and development of advanced instrumentation for aircraft and airborne research, where the application of fibre optic sensors in-flight is a key focus of his work. Partners in this work have included DLR, NLR, ONERA, Airbus UK and Airbus Helicopters UK.
