Golden Paragraph: Dr. Oriol Lehmkuhl Barba holds a PhD in Mechanical Engineering (UPC, 2012). He is post-doct researcher at the Heat Engines Department at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) for the research project “Study of turbulent flows past bluff bodies with massive separation:
Application to flow control.” His main research interests are related to turbulence modelling, multi-phase modelling, high-performance computing (HPC), multi-physics modelling, aerodynamic simulations and loads-alleviation optimization, biological flows simulations. He has been the director 8 PhD theses and 2 master theses, is author of 32 papers in JCR journals (h-index 8), more than 150 contributions to peer-reviewed international conferences and 4 patents. As a consequence of this research activity Dr. Lehmkuhl has built a strong research network in the fields of high performance computing, turbulence modelling, aerodynamics and industrial applications (wind energy, solar thermal energy, etc.), including different Universities (i.e Stanford University, University of Stuttgart, University of Groningen, University of Southampton, University of Eindhoven, etc.), research institutes (i.e Center of Turbulence Research, Barcelona Supercomputer Center, Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics, Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research, etc.) and companies (i.e Alstom Wind, Envision Energy, Total, Gas Natural, Scnema, Liebherr, Abengoa Solar, Fagor, HP, Seat, Enair, Ficosa, …). In adition, Dr. Lehmkuhl has been involved in 8 national and EU financially supported projects focused on the development of HPC CFD codes (FP6, FP7, H2020 and CleanSky and has been participant of 19 High Performance Computing research projects of the Spanish Supercomputer Network (RES) and 3 Tier-0 PRACE HPC projects.
