ET-TFE-EFD

BACKGROUND

With a background in aerospace engineering, I worked at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) Göttingen for several years and earned a PhD degree from the TU Braunschweig, specializing in the field of physical modeling and numerical simulation. My doctoral thesis was recognized with the STAB prize from the German Aerospace Aerodynamics Association (STAB), of the German Society for Aeronautics and Astronautics (DGLR).

RESEARCH

Fluid dynamics is omnipresent, and the ability to predict the behavior of fluid flow is indispensable in numerous scenarios. For that purpose, so-called numerical methods are employed to solve equations through computer simulations. This methodology is known as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).

For more information, refer to the Research section.

TEACHING

My teaching activities focus on the fields of transport physics and aerospace engineering:

  • Fluid Mechanics II
  • Frontiers in Aeronautics
  • ME 7 - Fluid Mechanics & Heat Transfer

Fluid dynamics is omnipresent, and the ability to predict the behavior of fluid flow is indispensable in numerous scenarios. For that purpose, so-called numerical methods are employed to solve equations through computer simulations. This methodology is known as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).

Typically, fluid flows are not stable and can transition to a chaotic state that we refer to as "turbulent". Comprehending turbulence and its origins from both a physical and engineering perspective holds great importance for various industries. This understanding is instrumental in optimizing designs, improving efficiency, and ensuring the safety and reliability of systems.

Methods with different fidelity, such as theoretical approaches, numerical simulations, and machine learning, are employed and developed:

  • Application and Development of CFD
  • Scale-Resolving Simulations
  • Turbulence and Transition Modelling
  • Data-Driven Modelling
  • Aerodynamics and Vortex Dynamics

Courses academic year 2023/2024

Courses in the current academic year are added at the moment they are finalised in the Osiris system. Therefore it is possible that the list is not yet complete for the whole academic year.
