Research Interests

Dr Trevor Young (PhD, MSc, BSc) is an Associate Professor in Aeronautical Engineering and former Head of the Department at UL. He has been involved in aviation research and development (R&D) activities throughout his thirty years career in industry and academia. He has led more than 40 research projects and workpackages. Since joining UL, he has been the recipient of more than 30 research grants, with a value to UL exceeding €15 million (he was Principal Investigator for research grants exceeding €7 million). Funding has been received from the European Commission (EC), the Irish State and industrySince 2000, he has published, as author or co-author, more than 100 technical papers (incl. 52 peer reviewed journal papers), ten book chapters (four in encyclopaedia/handbook) and edited one book on Innovation in Aeronautics (Woodhead Press, 2012). He is the author of two books: Performance of the Jet Transport Airplane: Performance Analysis Methods, Flight Operations, and Regulations (Wiley, 2018) and Technical Writing A-Z: A Commonsense Guide to Engineering Reports and Theses (ASME Press, 2005). Professor Young is a member of the Scientific Committee of the EC's Clean Sky 2 research programme.
