I am a faculty member of the Physics of Fluids group at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. The group belongs to the Faculty of Science and Technology and is embedded in the Max Planck Center Twente. My research focuses on using state of the art Large Eddy Simulations (LES) and Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) to study turbulent flows such as Rayleigh-Bénard convection and the turbulent flows in extended wind farms.

Our simulations are performed on top supercomputers throughout Europe such as Snellius (SURF), Marenostrum 4 (BSC-CNS) Piz Daint (CSCS), and SuperMUC-NG (LRZ) through NWO, EuroHPC JU, and the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing and my research is generously supported by a "Computational Sciences for Energy Research" CSER tenure track grant, a STW VIDI grant, and an ERC starting grant.
