Francesco Avallone is assistant professor in Aeroacoustics (Wind Energy Section, Aerodynamics, Wind Energy and Propulsion Department, Faculty of Aerospace Engineering) at Delft University of Technology since 2017. He is co-teacher of the course of Fundamentals of Aeroacoustics and he is author and co-author of more than 50 publications (journals and conference papers) in the fields of aeroacoustics and high-speed aerodynamics.

Francesco is interested in the application of computational aeroacoustics to study the physical mechanisms behind noise generation, and to design physics-based innovative noise reduction solutions. He is interested in several applications such as airfoil self-noise, acoustic liners, jet installation noise and ducted wind turbine.

He joined Delft in 2015 as PostDoc researcher where he focused on trailing-edge noise mitigation with conventional and innovative trailing-edge serrations. Before joining Delft, he carried out his PhD on boundary layer transition in hypersonic flows at the University of Naples Federico II (Naples, Italy) where he also obtained his BSc and MSc degrees.
