  • Academic background

    I am Research Director CNRS at LIMSI-CNRS, Paris-Saclay, France, Visiting Professor at Harbin Institute of Technology, China, Honorary Professor and Chair of << Turbulence Control >> at TU Berlin, Germany, Professor and Chair of << Flow Modelling and Control >> at TU Braunschweig, Germany, and Invited Professor at ENSMA, France. We work on closed-loop turbulence control solutions for transport and energy systems. Born in 1966, I received a degree as diplom physicist from the Georg-August-University, Göttingen, in 1989. I stayed on to receive the physics doctorate in 1992. In the sequel, I had positions at the Max-Planck-Institut für Strömungsforschung, Göttingen, the German Aerospace Center, Göttingen, the Göttingen University, the United Technologies Research Center (East Hartford, CT, USA) and the Berlin Institute of Technology, where I was Professor and Chair of ''Reduced-Order Modelling for Flow Control''. In 2009 I joined the Institute PPRIME, Poitiers, France as Research Director CNRS. I also became Head of the Senior ANR Chair of Excellence ''Closed-Loop Control of Turbulent Shear Flows using Reduced-Order Models (TUCOROM).'
