Career Highlights

Wolfgang Schröder received his doctorate degree at RWTH Aachen University 1987. After his postdoc time at the California Institute of Technology in Applied Math, he was in charge of the Aerothermodynamics Department, Space Infrastructure at the German Aerospace AG. Then, he joined the University of Applied Sciences in Braunschweig, before he took over the Chair of Fluid Mechanics and became Head of the Institute of Aerodynamics of the RWTH Aachen University in 1998. His main research interests are in the fields of turbulence, aeroacoustics, vortex dynamics, drag reduction, biological and medical flows, and particleladen flows. He generally emphasizes a coupled numerical and experimental approach, i.e., simulations and measurements are used to doublecheck the findings and to develop innovative theoretical models. He has published more than 250 journal papers. He has been Treasurer of EUROMECH from 2004 through 2015. Wolfgang Schröder is a Member of the Academy of Sciences North-Rhine Westphalia, a Membre Titulaire de l´ Académie de l’ Air et de l’ Espace, Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of Mechanics B/Fluids, and a Fellow of the American Physical Society.
