Dr. Athul Joseph

Assistant Professor

Alliance College of Engineering and Design

Dr. Athul Joseph holds a Ph.D. from Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore in Aerospace Engineering. His doctoral thesis was related to characterization fuel sprays used in aerospace engines. One part of his thesis work has been published in ASME Journal of fluid engineering. He has done his ME and BE degrees in Aeronautical Engineering from Anna University. He has almost a decade of experience in research and teaching.

Dr. Joseph teaches subjects such as incompressible aerodynamics, compressible aerodynamics, aircraft performance, airbreathing propulsion, rocket propulsion, aero engine design etc. His areas of interests are spray characterization of aerospace injectors, low and high-speed aerodynamics, turbomachines etc. He has presented his work in international conferences in India and abroad. He is also an active sports person and has secured medals in Anna University zonal and interzonal athletics meets.
