TU Delft - Process & Energy Department

Leeghwaterstraat 39, 2628 CB, Delft

The Netherlands


I’m interested in understanding complex turbulent fluid flows, mostly using numerical simulations. My work has focused on turbulent wall-bounded flows and multiphase turbulence (e.g. particle suspensions/bubbly flows, high-Reynolds number flows). I’m also interested in the development of fast numerical methods and their implementation in versatile solvers that can harness modern high-performance computing resources.

In case you are looking for it, here is my (extensive) CV.

Where am I

I graduated as a PhD in 2017 at TU Delft, supervised by Wim-Paul Breugem. After a two-year postdoc at KTH Mechanics (Sweden), I kept moving North to the University of Iceland in a three-year research fellowship in the School of Engineering and Natural Sciences. Though I moved out of Iceland after this three-year period, I will stay in touch and affiliated as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Iceland.

In October 2022 I moved back to the 3ME Faculty at TU Delft as a tenure-track Assistant Professor! Please stay tuned as I will update (and refurbish) this website with some exciting news and announcements related to this new position.

Now you know where to find me!
