Dr. Bruno Eckhardt

Prof. Bruno Eckhardt (IUTAM representative)
Prof. Bruno Eckhardt holds a chair in theoretical physics at the Philipps-University Marburg. He obtained his Ph.D. from Univ. of Bremen (1986) and has held visiting positions at the Weizmann Institute, University of California at San Diego, the Institute of Theoretical Physics at Santa Barbara and the University of Maryland, College Park. Since 2009 he has an adjunct appointment at TU Delft. His interests range from low to high Reynolds number flows, covering chaotic mixing and synchronization of cilia, as well as transition in pipe flow and the formation of localized turbulent patches; scaling and statistical properties of fully developed turbulence. He applies ideas from dynamical systems and statistical mechanics to flows. He is an author/ coauthor of 3 books and about 180 papers. He is a Fellow of EUROMECH, the American Physical Society and the Institute of Physics, London. He was awarded the Leibniz Prize by the German Research Foundation in 2002. He is associate editor for Physical Review and responsible for its Fluid Mechanics section. He is editor of Physik Journal and serves on the editorial board of Nonlinearity and Journal of Nonlinear Science.

Dr. Sanjiva Lele

Prof. Sanjiva K. Lele
Prof. Lele's research combines numerical simulations with analytical modeling to study fundamental unsteady flow phenomena, turbulence, flow instabilities and flow-generated sound. Recent projects include simulation and modeling of high-speed jets and shock-cell noise, exploitation of flow instabilities for enhanced mixing and for reducing the vortex-wake hazard from airplanes, new approaches of active/passive noise control, and the development of high-fidelity prediction methods for engineering applications including transition and flow-generated noise. Professor Lele has a joint appointment in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Stanford University, USA. He has been an Associate Editor of the Journal of Fluid Mechanics.
