Research Interest

Direct numerical simulation of turbulent flows; physics and Control of turbulent flows; scientific computing and numerical methods for turbulent flows; development of actuators and electrodynamic systems for flow control. 


Working with me

If you are a graduate or undergraduate student and find any of my research project interesting, please contact me. Actually I have open experimental (EXP), numerical (NUM) and theoretical (THE) projects for master theses:

  • (EXP)  development and characterisation of plasma actuators for active control of turbulent flows
  • (NUM) development and validation of an immersed boundary method for turbulent flows above heterogeneously rough surfaces
  • (NUM/THE) production, transport and dissipation of Reynolds stresses in turbulent flow at high values of Reynolds number



02/2019:  I'm going to give a seminar at the Imperial College London titled "structure-function tensor equations in wall turbulence"

10/2018: The project CWING "Flow Control on a Wing" worth 793.000€ of computational resources has been accepted! 

10/2018: I'm going to give a seminar at the Linné Flow Center of the KTH in Stockholm titled "alternative ways of looking at scale interactions in wall turbulence"

09/2018: I'm going to attend and give a talk at the annual meeting of the DFG Sonderschwerpunktprogramm 1881 "turbulent superstructures" in Lüneburg
