Contact

Main project: Multiple EU- or RW-funded projects or service contracts
Funding: CAR
obtained his PhD at UCL in 2009, then worked as a F.R.S-FNRS Postdoctoral Researcher and, since 2011, he has a position as Research Engineer. He works on externally funded projects in the domains of fluid mechanics, aerodynamics, heat transfer and thermodynamics. This projects include large European or Regional projects as well as smaller industrial contracts. He is interested in theoretical, numerical and experimental activities. Among other projects, he has been working on aircraft wakes (with Prof. Winckelmans), wind turbine aerodynamics (Prof Chatelain and Prof Winckelmans), the experimental characterisation of a scaled water turbine (with Prof H. Jeanmart), development of an airship demonstrator (Prof Chatelain and Prof Winckelmans), flashing two-phase choked flows (with Prof. Bartosiewicz) and turbulent heat transfer in liquid metal (with Prof. Bartosiewicz).
