Jason Reese
multiscale flow thermodynamics leverhulme

1. Introduction

Jason Meredith Reese FREng[1] FRSE[2] FInstP FIMechE is a British engineering scientist, and Regius Professor of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh, UK.[3]

His research is in multiscale flow systems in which the molecular or discrete nature of the fluid determines the overall fluid dynamics. A winner of the Philip Leverhulme Prize for Engineering (Leverhulme Trust), the Lord Kelvin Medal (Royal Society of Edinburgh), and a MacRobert Award (Royal Academy of Engineering) finalist, he was previously Weir Professor of Thermodynamics & Fluid Mechanics, and Head of the Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Department, at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.

2. Education

Jason Reese studied at Imperial College London, graduating in Physics in 1988. He completed his Masters and Doctoral research in Applied Mathematics at the University of Oxford in 1993,[4] where he was one of the last research students of Leslie Colin Woods.[5]

3. Career and Research

After his PhD, Reese moved into engineering and was a postdoctoral researcher at the Technical University of Berlin, and the University of Cambridge. In 1996 he became a lecturer in Engineering in the University of Aberdeen, and then joined King's College London in 2001 as Lecturer and ExxonMobil Engineering Fellow. He moved to the University of Strathclyde in 2003 as the Weir Professor of Thermodynamics & Fluid Mechanics, and was latterly Head of the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering. In 2013 he was appointed to the Regius Professorship in Edinburgh University,[6] the ninth incumbent of this position since it was established by Queen Victoria in 1868.

Reese is an engineering scientist. He conducts and publishes theoretical and computational research into multiscale fluid dynamics, in particular, micro and nano flows,[7] as well as rarefied gas dynamics. He is also involved in the industrial application of fluid mechanics: he was part of the team that founded Brinker Technology Ltd in 2002 to commercialise a novel leak detection and sealing system for oil/gas pipelines and wellheads, and water mains pipes.[8][9][10]

From 2012 to 2016, Reese was a member of the Scottish Science Advisory Council, Scotland's highest level science advisory body, providing independent advice and recommendations on science strategy, policy and priorities to the Scottish Government.[11]

In 2018, he was awarded a 10-year Chair in Emerging Technologies[12] by the Royal Academy of Engineering, to research and develop multiscale engineering design, "from molecules to machines".

4. Awards and Honours
