Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Director of the Fluid and Acoustic Engineering Laboratory, Beihang University


Xiaofeng Sun is a Professor of Aerospace Engineering at the Beihang University (BUAA) where he directs the Fluid and Acoustic Engineering Laboratory. His principal fields of interest include unsteady flows in turbomachines, vortex dynamics, and aeroacoustics. The work includes experimental, theoretical, and computational investigations into vortex sound interactions, flow stabilities in compressors, control of blade flutter, and acoustic design of aeroengine nacelles as well as various strategies for fan and compressor noise reduction. Prof. Sun received his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from BUAA in 1988, his M.S. (1985) and B.S. (1982) in Mechanical Engineering from the Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

He was a visiting research fellow of DLR at the Institute for Experimental Fluid Mechanics in Berlin from 1992 to 1994, a visiting professor at the University of Tokyo in Japan from 1997 to 1998, a visiting professor of The Pennsylvania State University in 2001, and a visiting professor of the Ecole Centrale Lyon in 2008. He was the recipient of the National Science Funds for Distinguished Young Scholars in 1999. He is a member of the International Advisory Committee of the Gas Turbine Society of Japan, an endowed chair professor sponsored by the Cheung Kong Scholarship Program, designated by the Ministry of Education of China, and a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of AIAA Journal of Propulsion and Power(2006-2018). Currently, he is the Editor-in-Chief of Chinese Journal of Aeronautics, and from 2016, he serves as the board director of Aero Engine Corporation of China (AECC).
