Wilfried Coenen



Wilfried Coenen started studying theoretical physics in his home country Belgium at the Universiteit Hasselt. He then continued his studies at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, where in 2005 he obtained a MSc in Applied Physics. During his master's thesis he stayed 9 months at the Von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics, performing research in the field of aeroacoustics. Before that, he also did an internship at the University of California San Diego under the supervision of professor Paul F. Linden, studying gravity currents and internal bores.

Preluding his PhD, Wilfried obtained in 2007 a Master in Mathematical Engineering from 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 his PhD, Wilfried did various short research stays: in 2007 at the University of California San Diego in collaboration with Prof. Forman Williams, in 2008 at the University of East Anglia with Prof. Norman Riley, in 2009 at the University of Hawaii at Manoa with Prof. Geno Pawlak and in 2010 at San Diego State University with Prof. Guus Jacobs.
