Dr. Philipp SchlatterAssociate Professor, KTH Royal Institute of Technology
Philipp Schlatter obtained a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zürich) in 2001, and a PhD in Fluid Mechanics from ETH in 2005. He then moved as a Postdoc to the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, first as a Postdoc, and from 2007-2010 as an assistant professor. In 2010 he became an associate professor at KTH, with special interest in large-scale simulations of turbulent flows, mainly in wall-bounded configurations. In 2014 he was chosen as a Wallenberg Academy Fellow, a prestiguous programme with 5 year funding for performing simulations of turbulence and control on airplane wings. He is currently the director of the Linné FLOW Centre at KTH Stockholm, leading the fluid-dynamics community in the Swedish e-Science Research Centre, and member of the Swedish Natioal Committee of Mechanics, and the Swedish National Allocation Committee for distribution of computer time. The current research involves both large-scale simulations based on highly accurate spectral and spectral-element methods, but also close interaction to experimentalists in an effort to cross-validate simulation and experimental data.
