Biography

Dr Siddharth Kulkarni is a Chartered Mechanical Engineer by background specialising in Engineering Design, and Renewable Energy. He received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering, from Birmingham City University, which was affiliated to Rolls-Royce plc. He is currently working as a Lecturer in Engineering Design, at Coventry University. 

Prior to joining Coventry University in 2017, Dr Kulkarni was a Research Fellow in Design Automation (Sponsored by Rolls-Royce) and Deputy-Head of Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) Lab at Birmingham City University. During this time, he also worked as a KBE Researcher in the Technology Strategy Board (TSB)/Rolls-Royce funded Strategic Investment in Low-carbon Engine Technology 2 (SILOET2) programme conducting Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis and developing correlation for simulation results with the experimental data, to optimise the design of Axial Compressor Blade Designs for Rolls-Royce. Dr Kulkarni has also designed and developed a Design Engineering automated closed loop system for tidal turbine blade design, analysis, and optimisation under industrial supervision from Rolls-Royce. 

Dr Kulkarni is a PRINCE2 registered Practitioner and was solely responsible for performing interior and exterior CFD analysis of Morgan’s LIFECar 2 prototype vehicle. He has strong experience in teaching Engineering Thermodynamics, Engineering Mathematics; and also worked voluntarily at Westfield Sports Cars Ltd, where he served as a Product Development Mechanical Engineer and provided Mechanical design leadership in project planning and execution on autonomous vehicle delivery projects. Dr Kulkarni has authored several journal articles, a book-chapter, and has one UK patent pending. He is also a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
