Wright, Lesley Associate Professor

Positions

Dr. Wright is investigating enhanced convective cooling technology, including heat transfer enhancement for gas turbine cooling applications. This experimental research has led to the development of innovative cooling technology for both turbine blade film cooling and internal heat transfer enhancement. In addition, Dr. Wright continues to investigate the effect of rotation on the thermal performance of rotor blade cooling passages. Her research interests have also led to the development of novel experimental methods for the acquisition of detailed surface and flow measurements in highly turbulent flows.
