Hi, my name is Henning!
I am a project leader and postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Nano- and Microfluidics (NMF) of the Technische Universität Darmstadt (TUDa). My research is funded by the Walter-Benjamin-Program of the German Research Foundation (DFG). I am also associated with the CRC 1194 (Interaction between Transport and Wetting Processes) and the Centre for Computational Engineering at TUDa as well as the Uncertainty Quantification Group in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
My broader research interests are multiphase flows on the microscale, lab-on-a-chips, and Bayesian uncertainty quantification. Besides, I am interested in numerical simulation and optimization, high performance computing and research software development. Recently, I have started to learn and apply machine learning for fluid dynamics as well as optical measurement methods like fluorescence microscopy and high speed imaging.
I received a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in chemical and process engineering from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the Technische Universität Berlin (TUB), Afterwards I was a research associate at TUB for four years where I received a Dr.-Ing. (PhD) in fluid process engineering. During my doctoral studies I was a visiting scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Before joining TUDa as a Walter Benjamin Fellow I was already associated with NMF and a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz.
