Bio

Wilfried has a M.Sc. degree in Applied Physics from the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (2005). During his master’s thesis he stayed 9 months at the Von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics.

After finishing his studies in Eindhoven, he moved to Spain to start a PhD at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. His PhD thesis, titled “Absolute instability in the near field of low-density jets”, was directed by Alejandro Sevilla and was presented in 2010.

During a post-doc, Wilfried collaborated with the fluid mechanics research group at the Universidad de Jaén. In 2011 he joined the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid again as a lecturer, where he stayed until his transfer to UC San Diego in 2015. After four years as a researcher in San Diego, he moved back to Madrid in 2019, to become a professor of fluid mechanics at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid.
