Wilfried Coenen started studying theoretical physics in his home country Belgium at the Universiteit Hasselt. He continued his studies at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, where in 2005 he obtained a M.Sc. in Applied Physics. During his master’s thesis he stayed 9 months at the Von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics.

After finishing his studies in Eindhoven, Wilfried 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.
