    Personal profile



    Caroline received her M.Eng (Hons), Aeronautical systems design and manufacture from the University of Bath in 1999 and continued there, completing a Ph.D. in ‘Fin buffeting over delta wings and the effect of a trailing-edge jet’ in 2003. Caroline joined Coventry University as a Lecturer in 2004 (made Senior Lecturer in 2006), having worked for BAE SYSTEMS as a Computational Aerodynamicist from 2002-2004. At Coventry she predominantly teaches Aerodynamics, Fluid Dynamics and Experimental Methods. She has held various Academic Leadership and Management positions e.g., Course Director, Associate Head of Department and she is also trained as an Independent Chair for the research degree awards process. She has been Director of Studies for a successful PhD in 2010 and has also taken the Subject Expert and Internal Examiner roles for other MSc by Research/PhD candidates. Caroline was External Examiner at University of Hertfordshire between 2013-2018 and is now EE for UWE until 2023. She is a full Member of the Royal Aeronautical Society and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. She was 1 of the first cohort of staff across the Coventry University Group to be selected for the Aurora Leadership Program, run by the LFHE, in 2019. She worked as DHoS for School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Automotive Engineering from 2019-22 and is currently Head of the School of Future Transport Engineering.

    Vision Statement


    I joined Coventry University when it was a predominantly teaching university. This meant that for the early stage of my career as a Lecturer and subsequently Senior Lecturer, my subject-related research took a back seat. I have been able to conduct research into Engineering Education and still see that as very important in my role. Without innovation and forward thinking in terms of delivery, content and course structure, universities will start to struggle in the wider market place and so developmental work in that area is crucial. I secured funding for engineering research into the Lanchester Aerofoil in 2014, work which is ongoing. The initial Masters project work won the 'John Barnes Trophy' from the AAU in 2017. In my current management role, I support and encourage staff to pursue scholarly activity and keep supporting our research output as an Independent Chair for PhD viva voces.
