Philipp Schlatter is Professor in Fluid Mechanics at the Department of Engineering Mechanics at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden.
He obtained a PhD in Fluid Mechanics from ETH in 2005. He then moved to the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, and became Full Professor in 2019. His work involves large-scale simulations of transitional and turbulent flows, mainly in wall-bounded configurations. Of particular interest are aspects of high-performance computing, spectral and spectral element methods, data analysis and decompositions, optimization, and novel numerical algorithms, as well as close interaction with experimentalists.
