Dr Manolesos is a Senior Lecturer in Aerospace Engineering and he is the Swansea University Wind Tunnel manager. His research interests include separated flows and separation control, drag reduction and flatback airfoils, wind turbine aerodynamics and aeroelasticity, aeroacoustics and atmospheric boundary layer flows.

He likes to use both experimental and numerical tools in a complementary manner, combining the strengths of the two approaches. Before he started his academic career, he worked as an aerodynamicist for Formula 1 teams (Red Bull Racing and Renault Formula 1 Team).
