Since April 2009 I have been working as an Assistant Professor in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) at the Aerodynamics Group, part of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering (LR) at De Technische Universiteit Delft in The Netherlands. My supervisor is Prof. Hester Bijl. Previously I worked at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Braunschweig, Germany, in the Numerical Methods (C²A²S²E) department of Prof. Norbert Kroll. There I was a significant contributer to the DLR Tau-Code which is extensively used within the european aerospace industry. I developed the currently used implicit solution algorithms, linearized solvers (including adjoint), and error estimation techniques. I specialize in most aspects of numerical methods for compressible, high Reynolds number flows - and their application to large problems of practical importance in aerospace.
