Welcome...

prof.dr.ir. B.J. Geurts (Bernard)

About Me

Bernard Geurts holds the chair for Multiscale Modeling and Simulation in the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Twente.

His research interests are in mathematics, physics and numerics. He concentrates on multiscale problems in turbulence, in complex fluids and in biology. These have applications related to generation and storage of energy, monitoring and improving health and predicting human impact on the environment.

He also holds a part-time chair for Anisotropic Turbulence at Eindhoven University of Technology, which allows to complement the modeling and simulation work with detailed physical experiments.
